Two surface pressure features that commonly accompany squall lines, the mesohigh and the wake low, may be explained at least in part as a linear response to the low-level cooling associated with stratiform precipitation. This response is numerically simulated for twoand three-dimensional, moving and stationary low-level coolings characteristic of squall line stratiform regions. When the cooling is defined to move and to have three-dimensional structure both a mesohigh and a mesolow develop, and… CONTINUE READING
