Abstract

Wind profilers are capable of obtaining horizontal wind data from approximately 1–17 km at hourly intervals. A network of four profilers is being tested in Colorado. This note discusses a case in which profiler winds, taken between the standard upper air observing times of 1200 and 0000 GMT, contributed to real-time experimental forecasts of severe convective weather.
