  • Description:
    "On 19-22 October 1996, a cut-off extratropical cyclone with a persistent moisture feed from Hurricane Lili produced excessive precipitation. All-time rainfall records were shattered in southern Maine. Extreme flooding resulted, greatly impacting travel and commerce. Extensive damage occurred to state infrastructure and private homes. A hydrological overview and statistical analysis of the rainfall totals will be provided to demonstrate the magnitude of this unique storm. Performance of the Gray, ME WSR-88D (KGYX) Storm Total Precipitation (STP) product will be discussed. Emphasis will be on manipulating equivalent reflectivity-precipitation rate (Ze-R) relationships and scanning techniques within the Precipitation Processing Subsystem (PPS) to optimize radar- based precipitation estimation"--Introduction.
