Abstract

A storm intercept crew from the University of Oklahoma made a sounding near and underneath the wall cloud of the right-moving member of a splitting thunderstorm in north Texas on 27 May 1985. A comparison between the sounding and an environmental sounding indicated that the low-level moist layer was moister and much deeper near and underneath the wall cloud.
