This paper details the world’s highest surface-based vertically pointing radar observations from Nepal’s Everest Base Camp during a snowstorm on 17 April 2019. The radar echo extended higher than the summit of Mt. Everest at times and indicated turbulence and environments favorable for riming. The observed precipitation and velocity structures are similar to those observed in other mountainous areas and suggest that satellite-based remote sensing of snowstorms can utilize assumptions of similar structures across a range of elevations.
