 The PRATE field from the RUC is an instantaneous precipitation rate. The 1-h precipitation would be another candidate field for your application. It is possible to convert 3-d hydrometeor mixing ratios for rain, snow, and graupel into estimated reflectivities, but that probably goes beyond what you need.
I hope this helps.
