(2016, hereafter F16), it is stated that, outside the observed lightning areas, the pseudo-observations for water vapor mass (q ) were not created because these grid points are considered as non- updraft areas. This implied that pseudo-q outside the lightning areas were treated as missing values, which was the original intent. In the 3DVAR package, however, the missing pseudo-q outside the lightning areas were inadvertently assigned a zero innovation instead of a missing value. Because of this, all LDA-based experiments were assimilating zero in- novations for q outside the lightning areas, forcing the analysis for q close to the
