Surface and dual-Doppler radar analysis of 23-24 June 1985 OK PRE-STORM heat bursts
Doppler radar data are used to investigate heat bursts which accompanied a mesoscale convective system that traversed the OK PRE-STORM mesonetwork on 23-24 June 1985. The three dimensional structure of the precipitation and wind fields are discussed in an effort to uncover the cause of strong downdrafts which lead to the formation of heat bursts. Surface mesonetwork data are presented to depict the changes in temperature, dew point, relative humidity, Be, wind speed and wind direction which characterize them. Digitized WSR-57 radar data are used to detail the progression of the MCS, and a sounding ...
