Mei-Yu Front, Part 2: Forecasting Frontal Movement and Precipitation Over Taiwan

Mei-Yu Front, Part 2: Forecasting Frontal Movement and Precipitation Over Taiwan
  1. Describe under what conditions a Mei-Yu front approaching Taiwan will move or remain stationary. 
    1. Explain how the Mei-Yu frontal movement is affected by horizontal temperature advection, frontogenetic processes, and the barrier jet.
  2. Describe the conditions under which a linear mesoscale convective system (MCS) associated with the Mei-Yu front may strengthen or weaken.
  3. Use observational data and NWP guidance to estimate the precipitation from a Mei-Yu event.
    1. Analyze satellite and radar data and NWP guidance to forecast the frontal movement.
    2. Determine when and where the model precipitation forecast should be adjusted
