The Environment of Warm-Season Elevated Thunderstorms Associated with Heavy Rainfall over the Central United States

  title={The Environment of Warm-Season Elevated Thunderstorms Associated with Heavy Rainfall over the Central United States},
  author={James T. Moore},
Twenty-one warm-season heavy-rainfall events in the central United States produced by mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) that developed above and north of a surface boundary are examined to define the environmental conditions and physical processes associated with these phenomena. Storm-relative composites of numerous kinematic and thermodynamic fields are computed by centering on the heavy-rain-producing region of the parent elevated MCS. Results reveal that the heavy-rain region of elevated… CONTINUE READING
