Suggestion: Total Precipitable Water

Long time user here. I love seeing the frequent upgrades to this service. I would greatly enjoy if Total Precipitable Water were added as an available parameter to look at. Where I live and forecast, this is a critical tool in predicting the strength and timing of atmospheric river and other rainfall events.
Attached is a TPW display from WeatherBell for the ECMWF. Of particular interest in this one is the moisture plume aiming at SE Alaska. This display helps to pick out the source region of moisture, which is also useful for predicting temperatures and precipitation type.
Thanks for having this awesome service!
@mark-ingalls Thank you for your suggestion. For now, I would recommend using Rain accumulation.
@korina I would also like to see Precipitable Water added to the tool (which is already great, by the way!). I live in the US in the Pacific Northwest and atmospheric rivers are a big deal here. As far as I understand, precipitable water is the best way to track atmospheric rivers.
@mark-ingalls Would love to see PWAT also. It’s a great indicator of heavy rainfall in broad scale ascent rainfall and thunderstorms. Would be an amazing addition please!
