Measured Severe Convective Wind Climatology and Associated Convective Modes of Thunderstorms in the Contiguous United States, –09 BRYAN T. SMITH NOAA/NWS/NCEP/Storm Prediction Center, Norman, Oklahoma TOMAS E. CASTELLANOS University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida ANDREW C. WINTERS University of . Convective storm detection is the meteorological observation, and short-term prediction, of deep moist convection (DMC). DMC describes atmospheric conditions producing single or clusters of large vertical extension clouds ranging from cumulus congestus to cumulonimbus, the latter producing thunderstorms associated with lightning and thunder. a climatology of convective activity in the western end of the isthmus of tehuantepec Conference Paper (PDF Available) May with 16 Reads How we measure 'reads'. Aviation Weather Center Homepage provides comprehensive user-friendly aviation weather Text products and graphics.
We then investigate the convective properties, vertical precipitation structures, and microphysics of those rainy events. Rainfall Characteristics and Environmental Conditions During the Mei‐Yu season, two well‐defined quasi‐stationary Mei‐Yu fronts approached or affected Taiwan [ Davis and Lee, ; Xu et al., ].Cited by: 4. To study the large-scale rainfall patterns as a function of BSISO phase, we use the TRMM Multisatellite Precipitation Analysis surface rainfall product (version 7) called 3B42 (Huffman et al. ).The 3B42 rainfall data have a 3-h temporal resolution and a ° latitude–longitude spatial resolution, available from 50°S to 50°N during –Cited by: 1. Archived severe report information from the National Climatic Data Center’s Storm Data and single-site volumetric Weather Surveillance Radar Doppler (WSRD) level-II radar data are used to identify measured severe wind gusts attributed to thunderstorms and to classify the convective modes associated with these measured gusts using the Cited by: Mesoscale convective systems which are not organized in a squall line structure are quite common in middle latitudes. They range in size from the scale of slightly larger than a multicellular thunderstorm, having three or four cells to the scale of a mesoscale convective complex or MCC. The MCC shown in Fig. was defined by Maddox () in terms of the .
Convective winds may be augmented, op-posed, or eliminated by airflow having its origin in the larger pressure systems. The influence of these general winds on the convective wind systems varies with the strength of the general wind, its direction relative to the convective circulation, and the stability of the lower atmosphere. The combined use of both radiosonde data and three-dimensional satellite derived data over ocean and land is useful for a better understanding of atmospheric thermodynamics. Here, an attempt is made to study the thermodynamic structure of convective atmosphere during pre-monsoon season over southwest peninsular India utilizing satellite derived data and Cited by: The second convective component also played an important role in this case. As the field of humidity convergence shows, the arriving cold front has a characteristic convergence line and a divergence line in front of it in the morning hours, before thunderstorm activity sharp change of convergence and divergence can also be seen as the thunderstorms by: 6. convective storms and tornado events . CAPE and its “opponent” counterpart, Convective Inhibition (CI) have been used to analyze convective precipitation variability, and trends or other changes in CAPE data of a region could be used to identify changes in convective systems of File Size: KB.
