Short summary
This study evaluated the impact of five hydrometeor species physics schemes during seven intense winter storm events in the northeastern United States. Model simulations were evaluated against gridded analysis data, precipitation, and weather radar derived products. Results show minor differences in simulated precipitation and large-scale regional patterns, yet simulated weather radar fields were more accurate in physics schemes with less ice pellet content above the melting layer.
