Reporting inconsistencies within the severe thunderstorm database (Schaefer and Edwards 1999, Brooks et al. 2003) have made climatological interpretation of severe convective wind reports (defined as estimated or measured thunderstorm gusts > 50 kt, or thunderstorm produced wind damage) less than ideal. A host of factors that at times greatly vary, such as population biases, density of potential structures to damage, and variability in reporting standards (Weiss et al. 2002), inherently… Expand
