Max Ungar – March 11

Convective Meteorology (Mesoscale Dynamics) Using Radiosonde Observations to Assess The ‘Three Ingredients’ Method to Forecast QLCS Mesovortices Max Ungar Friday, March 11 03:00 PM Quasi-Linear Convective System (QLCS) mesovortices have a propensity to produce impactful severe weather outcomes, including tornadoes and enhanced straight-line wind damage. Despite advances in understanding the origins of these meso-gamma scale […]

Rachel Miller – March 4

 Convective Meteorology (Mesoscale Dynamics) Examining the Impacts of Assimilating Vertically Integrated Ice on two PECAN MCSs Rachel Miller Friday, March 4 3:00 PM Forecasting nocturnal mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) is challenging due to the poor handling of the timing and location of convection initiation (CI). This study investigates two nocturnal MCSs from the Plains Elevated […]
