Results are presented of experimental investigation into the atmospheric precipitation characteristics by means of a correlation lidar. It has been found feasible to determine the complete set of characteristics of the zone of precipitation and to follow their spatiotemporal evolution from lidar returns. It is also shown that the light precipitation essentially increase the efficiency of lidar measurements of the wind velocity.
