Insights into extreme short-term precipitation associated with supercells and mesovortices
Overall, this manuscript aims to holistically evaluate the relationship between rotation and extreme precipitation processes, since radar and rain-gauge observations in several flash flooding events have suggested that the heaviest short-term rainfall accumulations were associated with supercells or mesovortices embedded within larger convective systems. A specific subclass of these events, when tornadoes and flash floods are both concurrent and collocated (referred to here at TORFF events), present a unique set of concerns, since the recommended life-saving actions for each threat are contradictory. ...
