Aircraft and radar weather data recorded for support of the Minuteman PVM-5 test are presented. The link-offset mode was used successfully to obtain radar data for correlation with the aircraft data. The correlation data were quite good, and provided usable relations of reflectivity factor Z and water content M on five of nine passes. Application of the Z-M relations to the reflectivity data recorded along the re-entry trajectories provided estimates of the water content profile and the weather severity index WSI for each of the trajectories.
