  • Description:
    A strongly developing cyclone east of the Rockies moved northward along the Montana/North Dakota border and deposited an inch or more of precipitation throughout eastern Montana. Embedded in this precipitation area was a heavy band, with rainfall amounts exceeding 7 inches over a 24 to 36 hour period. Kinematic vertical velocity profiles are examined. The possible roles played by frontogenesis and symmetric instability are investigated. The potential operational use of symmetric instability concepts, for both diagnostics and prediction, are discussed with respect to today's operational environment and that of the future.
