Conceptual Model


This figure shows a conceptual model of storm evolution for the Jun 16 case. In this scenario, cloudiness and precipitation are advected down-shear, due to a storm relative flow from the up to down shear side of the convection. This causes rainfall, and low-level stabilization before the core of the storm arrives in any given location. This helps mitigate the strong wind threat by keeping the strongest winds off the surface, above the stable layer near the ground. Later, the core of the storm arrives, with rain and hail, and in some locations large hail.
