, and moved with ~60% of the mean wind speed over the same layer (the mean values of these parameters, for all events, are 26° and 68%, respectively). The cold front is apparent in the sharp temperature gradient [>2.0°C (5 km) −1 in the cross-front direction], near-90° wind veer and abrupt turning of the isobars across the sharp trough axis, the latter accentuated by a 2–3-hPa pressure surge over 10 km in the cross-front direction, immediately to the rear of the front. A number of details are
