observed precipitation and gridbox values of the five LSVs across the entire region of China was calculated for all stations and all grid boxes. The results for the Beijing site are shown in Fig. 3a . For the MSLP, the center of the highly correlated areas is located between the lower reaches of both the Yellow River and Yangtze River. This high-correlation zone corresponds to a low pressure system that occurs in boreal summer and is a component of the rain belt that is brought by the summer monsoon

(GPROF surface types 3–5, corresponding to “maximum vegetation,” “high vegetation,” and “moderate vegetation”) or ocean (GPROF surface type 1). The “ocean” classification can include large water bodies, for example, the Great Lakes. Sea ice, arid regions, surface snow cover, rivers, coasts, and precipitation scenes are excluded. Each orbit is divided into 5° latitude bins. Statistics are derived separately for each of these bins that has at least 10 land and 10 water pixels without precipitation

it began as snow. CalWater ( Ralph et al. 2016 ) has managed a series of field campaigns along the U.S. West Coast to investigate clouds and precipitation, particularly in relation to atmospheric rivers (ARs). The 2015 field campaign occurred over January–March 2015 and captured several offshore AR events. The first case on 5 February 2015 developed offshore and was analyzed by Fairall et al. (2018) . Synoptic-scale weak convective precipitation associated with a midlatitude frontal system
