A Synoptic Climatology of Derecho Producing Mesoscale Convective Systems in the North-Central Plains
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2000)
Synoptic-scale environments favourable for producing derechos, or widespread convectively induced windstorms, in the North-Central Plains are examined with the goal of providing pattern-recognition:diagnosis techniques. ...
Synoptic-Scale Features Common to Heavy Snowstorms in the Southeast United States
(American Meteorological Society, 1997-03)
Eighteen heavy snowstorms in the Southeast are examined to determine the synoptic-scale features common to these storms. Storm-relative composites in the temporal domain are created by assigning a "zero hour" to each storm ...
An extensive episode of derecho-producing convective systems in the United States during May and June 1998: A multi-scale analysis and review
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2007)
A database was compiled for the period 1980–2005 to assess the threat to life in the conterminous United States from nonconvective high-wind events. This study reveals the number of fatalities from these wind storms, ...
