Severe thunderstorm cases of July 1990 thru June 1991

  • Description:
    Severe thunderstorm occurrences are relatively infrequent in much of the United States. As a result a forecaster only occasionally has an opportunity to forecast their development. This proves to be a problem as certainly one of the more important factors in forecasting severe thunderstorms is the level of experience of the forecaster. Realizing the importance that experience plays and difficulty involved for a meteorologist to study past cases, a summary was compiled of all the organized severe thunderstorm episodes for the period from July 1990 to June 1991. Included in each case were the times and locations of the severe weather reported along with specifics of the more noteworthy events. A composite of those parameters most frequently found to be associated with severe thunderstorms was included. Each case has a surface and 500mb analysis along with an infrared satellite photo. The objective was to give an overview to a forecaster as to what ingredients went into severe development with a more detailed analysis being left up to the individual.
