Wind induced errors in precipitation measurements result in systematic deficits, which are particularly large when the precipitation falls as snow combined with high wind speed. The actual magnitude of the deficit can amount to more than half of the true precipitation. In order to correct for these deficits, newly developed statistical models for solid and mixed precipitation are presented; together with a correction model for liquid precipitation presented earlier, a comprehensive system of correction models is now available. Statistical errors on the corrections are estimated.
