1. Introduction The radiosonde is widely considered to be the gold standard for measuring vertical profiles of thermodynamic and kinematic variables. The in situ nature of radiosonde observations allows scientists to obtain a high-vertical-resolution (roughly every 10 m) picture of the atmosphere. Because of this, radiosondes are used for several different applications. Meteorologists use these profiles to understand the current atmospheric state, initialize models, verify model forecasts, and

permits evaluation of the physical processes acting to force the LLJ. Observational analyses are supplemented with a high-resolution simulation using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model, which allows comparison of the dynamics responsible during the LLJ formation. 2. Observations of the 20 June 2015 Great Plains LLJ PECAN was a large multiagency field project conducted during June and July 2015 in the Great Plains region of the United States. The overarching goal of PECAN was to better
