Probability of Precipitation, PW, air mass thunderstorms and seabreeze thunderstorms
- Probability of precipitation (POP), air mass thunderstorm prediction with Precipitable Water (PW), and Mississippi/Louisiana seabreeze climatology
- Generally, higher POPs correlated to PWs greater than climatology. Climatology PWs are available as a gridded product and from SPC climatology soundings.
- Deriving Precipitable Water using radio occultation (interesting read, not required for class)
