Freezing and Melting, Precipitation Type, and Numerical Weather Prediction

Freezing and Melting, Precipitation Type, and Numerical Weather Prediction
1. Examine four thermodynamic scenarios closely, each of which produces a different precipitation situation. 2. Compare sounding, radar, and model signatures associated with these scenarios. 3. Compare the representation of these thermodynamic processes in operational models at and near the surface. 4. Become aware of potential problems with the model forecasts. 5. Examine the limiting processes and requirements for freezing rain.
