Measurements of elevation and azimuth angles, taken every six seconds by an AN/GMD-1 rawin set, are used to compute the detailed wind structure in an intense frontal zone. It is found that the vertical wind shear is discontinuous at the frontal boundaries as anticipated from the thermal wind equation.
