Speaker Notes:

This slide shows a cross section of RUC forecast divergence and upward vertical motion at 03/01 06 UTC. The pattern of convergence at low-levels (associated with the sloping front) and divergence at mid-levels is evident, along with the maxima of upward vertical motion located between the convergence and divergence east of BGM. Again, the intensity of the upper-level divergence, lower-level convergence, and upward vertical motion are all about mid-way between the NAM and GFS forecast values.
