About the event
“Basic concepts of (severe) convection forecasting are introduced with an emphasis on the ingredients based methodology. For each ingredient I will present its importance for the convection along its diagnosis and prognosis. A special emphasis is put on the identification of “lift” or the process of convective initiation. After the basic ingredients, we are going to look into vertical wind shear, especially on its influence on the different organisational forms of convection (single cells, multicells, supercells). For each form, we are going to investigate its basic conceptual model and relate it to the potential for severe weather. Further, we will concentrate on the synoptic and mesoscale patterns that are supportive of severe convection and negative factors that may degrade the severe convection risk. In the end, we are going to look at different types of severe weather, their link to the large-scale conditions and individual storm types.”
The four afternoon exercises will deal with interesting cases of severe convection in Europe. Dr. Tomáš Púčik: “Afternoon exercises will involve forecasting convection either in the current situation or using past cases for different parts of Europe in the groups. After the forecast, a discussion will follow with an emphasis on the subject that was studied during the morning”.
