Low topped Convective Potential Friday, March 15th, 2019

Must be a quite a bit of hail. Extremely low CC north of the hail. Was just reading about that today and can’t remember what it’s called 

Non-uniform beam filling. It happens when the sample volume has a gradient of ptypes in it. So it could be snow to rain or in this case hail/graupel and rain.

Thanks, but I didn’t handle it too well though. I said focus would be SE MA and RI. I think Ryan first mentioned the steep lapse rates too. I didn’t even think it would be this widespread...fun stuff!

Details always need to be worked out; but you had the guts to start a thread!

I love starting threads haha. Part of the fun is all the jokes and I enjoy trying to forecast SNE convection.

Some really great thunder over my head right now. First claps of the season always catch you off guard as you wonder what you just heard.

The whole thing was modeled down by LI and CC.i texted a few with model examples, but guidance really blew it.

This is equivalent to a flurry tracking thread in FL.

Steep lapse rates ftw 

Won't be able to buy 7.3 C/km 700-500 in July though.
