Summer severe (convective) weather presents many challenges to the forecaster. This self-paced, distance learning course addresses the scientific aspects of a few of those challenges: buoyancy, shear, and their interaction to create various types of summer severe weather phenomena (squall lines, bow echoes, supercells, etc).

Summer severe weather is a complex interaction of synoptic and mesoscale forcing. As both mesoscale observations and model resolution improve, the forecaster needs a thorough understanding of this type of high impact weather phenomena in order to react properly during these rapidly evolving situations. These self-paced modules discuss the basic principles of summer severe (convective) weather with the aim of improving the prediction of significant and severe convection.
