Abstract

An intense rainstorm at Fremont, Mo., on July 28, 1964, yielded over 3 in. of rain in 30 min. and a total of 9.5 in. in 5 hr. The synoptic weather situation which was responsible for producing such an intense rain is discussed. Mass rainfall curves, a total storm isohyetal map, an area-depth curve, and a graph of rainfall rates, are presented. Computed updrafts in the clouds versus observed updrafts from radar data are discussed; the maximum cloud penetration height is compared with observed radar echo heights.
