Questions about CAPE and other meteorological questions.

Jul 20, 2014 - 8:43 PM - by Raymond Mason
For a while now I have been trying to learn how to forecast severe weather. So what I did was use a radar program along with Twister Data to try and figure this out (I don't look at national weather service forecasts or weather channel since I want to learn to do this myself.) I know CAPE stands for Convective Available Potential Energy. The higher the CAPE the more potential for severe weather.
