West-WRF Meteogram and Virtual RASS Forecasts

Water Vapor Flux Plot: Top Panel: Wind barbs colored by speed (m s-1) and snow level represented by black dots. Middle Panel: Integrated water vapor (mm; black dashed line) and bulk water vapor flux (in kt; red dashed line). Bottom Panel: Bulk upslope flux (in kt; dashed red line) and 3-hr accumulated precipitation (mm; blue line). Bottom axis represents initialization time with time increasing to the right. The red dot on the map indicates the location of the current plot.

Virtual RASS Plot: Top Panel: Wind barbs (m s-1) and virtual potential temperature (K; shaded according to scale). Second Panel: Surface wind speed (m s-1; blue line) and surface wind direction (°;black dashed line). Third Panel: Hourly precipitation (mm; solid line) and cloud liquid content below 5 km (mm; dashed line). Bottom Panel: Water vapor mixing ration (g kg-1; blue line), temperature at 2 meters (°C; red line) and surface pressure (hPa; black dashed line). Bottom axis represents initialization time with time increasing to the right. The red dot on the map indicates the location of the current plot.
