isolated storms generated by surface convection caused by daytime heating
massive thunderstorms with a single circulation cell with very strong up down drafts
when the downdraft hits the wind it spreads out in all directions
describes rising air parcel that has not been cooled to saturation.
Does NOT vary
air will cool/warm by 10 degrees celsius for every kilometer of elevation
describes temp change of still air as it varies through atmosphere
varies from time to time
implies that cloud is precipitating
cumulonimbus-associated with storms
-movement of air masses
occurs when air is lifted upward and over mountain barrier
as moist air is lifted over a mountain it cools and condenses causing rain/snow
-air forced upward
-rises because it is warmer and less dense
-if rises enough, it forms cloud and maybe participation (cumulus clouds_
if ELR is greater (cools more quickly) than the DAR or MAR, air is able to rise freely
-severe t-storms would form under these conditions
formed as layers of ice accumulates as updrafts
usually begins as graupel and layers are added as it rises and falls
instability increases and convection reaches greater heights
-as down drafts exist, updrafts carry the cloud high into atmosphere, creating anvil shape as upper level winds spread the cloud out
