Abstract:Probabilities for various types of severe weather (thunder, hail, tornadoes, and heavy raindays) have been determined as a function of the maximum daily cloud top height observed by weather radars. The probabilities are based on data collected during March through August, 1971-1973, and in a 25,000 mi2 (66,000 km2) area in central Illinois. [The data and analysis were described by R. C. Grosh in Relationships between Severe Weather and Echo Tops in Central Illinois, published in Preprint Volume, Tenth Conference on Severe Local Storms, AMS, Boston, 1977.]
