COMET_CASE_031: COMET Case Study 031:Null Event:Central Plains Severe Wx
SummaryThis case is a good example of what happens when the environment is so capped that despite many other favorable conditions, no convection can occur. Early in the day, the models and model soundings showed indications of the potential for severe weather in the Central Plains states. By late in the day, mostly clear skies dominated the region,as the cap prevailed over Kansas, Oklahoma, and north central Texas.
This case provides an example of a strongly capped severe weather environment, and shows that despite very favorable instability and shear, no convection can occur.
