The characteristics of raindrop size distribution during Typhoon Meranti, determined using disdrometer (LPA10) data collected from 14 to 15 Sep. 2016 in Fujian Province, China, were associated with different parts of the storm. From the front side of the rain band to the central region and then to the rear side or to the residual clouds of Typhoon Meranti, the top of the radar echo, reflectivity, raindrop number concentration and spectrum width all increased when Meranti moved close and then
