12Z BUF (red/green) / PIT(blue) Skew-t
Slide 10 of 52
This slide contains the 12Z soundings for Buffalo, NY (BUF - in red and green), and for Pittsburgh, PA (PIT - in light blue). There are two very important features. First, notice the substantial moist layer evident in the PIT sounding, but not the BUF sounding from just above the surface to around 700 mb. Second, note the warm temperature layer, especially on the PIT sounding, between 700 and 500 mb. A lifted parcel, even from the base of the moist layer, would be capped off by the warm layer.
