Assimilation of ZDR Columns for Improving the Spin-Up and Forecast of Convection in Storm-Scale Models Achieving accurate storm-scale analyses and reducing the spin-up time of modeled convection is a primary motivation for assimilating radar data and an active area of research. One popular technique for accomplishing this is diabatic initialization, in which latent heat and/or […]

African Easterly Wave Tracks as Simulated by CMIP5 Models African Easterly Waves (AEWs) impact Sahel rainfall and serve as a trigger disturbance for tropical cyclones (TCs) in the North Atlantic Ocean. Currently, there is no agreement regarding the projected TC trends for the future. So far, there has been very little investigation into the changes […]

SENSITIVITY OF ENSEMBLE FORECASTS OF SUPERCELLS TO INITIAL CONDITION UNCERTAINTY   The sensitivity of full-physics ensemble forecasts of supercells to initial condition (IC) uncertainty is investigated. The motivation for the study largely stems from the NOAA Warn-on-Forecast (WoF) program, where the primary objective is to develop a storm-scale ensemble prediction system that will generate probabilistic […]

On TPV thinking; Impacts on Arctic sea ice Arctic sea ice exhibits considerable year to year variability, likely amplifying over the next decades as the ice thins. Problematically, larger year to year sea ice anomalies exhibit larger forecast errors. What processes drive the evolution and prediction of summer sea ice? Cyclonic tropopause polar vortices (TPVs) […]
