Microburst Risk Algorithm observes Favorable Conditions for Strong Convective Winds over the Chesapeake Bay

Ken Pryor (NESDIS / STAR) A GOES sounder-derived Microburst Windspeed Potential (MWP) algorithm, based on convective available potential energy (CAPE), and vertical temperature and humidity lapse rates, and based on the vertical difference in equivalent potential temperature (theta-e difference, TED) … Continue reading
