Data from: Spatial variation of the rain-snow temperature threshold across the Northern Hemisphere

Keith S. Jennings, Taylor S. Winchell, Ben Livneh & Noah P. Molotch
We present the first continuous map of rain-snow air temperature thresholds over the Northern Hemisphere land surface, underlining the spatial variability of precipitation phase partitioning. Land surface models typically discriminate between rain and snow using a simple, spatially uniform air temperature threshold, but observations indicate the threshold is not static. Our analysis of a 29-year observational dataset (n = 17.8 million) shows the threshold varies significantly, averaging 1.0°C and ranging from -0.4°C to 2.4°C for...
