Stop A Chase Bust Before It Starts

Everything is in place, strong low level jet, capes > 4000jkg, and very favorable vertical wind shear, and to make it all even better it's a high risk pds forcast. You drive 300+ miles to the target only to find the sun set peacfully into an empty stormless sky. What happened???Attack of the killer mid level capping inversion that's what.

So the cap is too strong what can be done Take the initiative with this award winning Unprediction Center strategy.

Break that cap no matter how strong

Get several hundred feet of metal coils deploy them in a field and get some juice flowing to them (climbing a power line works best) Do not worry about causing a brush fire as this will only enhance day time heating. Now with the resulting fire on the ground you have just what you need to get a higher temp than the cap. :wink:
It's all fun and games until the fire department shows up
WARNING THIS IS A JOKE AND IS NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY DOING SO WILL LIKELY GET YOU ARRESTED FOR ARSON!!! :shock:
 
Good concept :), Here is mine. It borrows your coils... see below.
Have Patton deliver 100,000 high velocity fans (the mega size industrial fans housed in a cylinder). Point the fans straight up, or at least at a 75 to 80 degree angle up. Be sure to orient the fans to where they don't fight the wind (eg. if there is a SW wind, don't point them toward the SW, point them to the NE) Place fans, along with a healthy supply of power in a very large empty field. Take those coils of yours and place them above the fans (for use with very strong caps).
Also, find a healthy source of water and force it through a mister. Place the misters above the fans / coils.
When there is a strong cap in place, switch on the fans. If dewpoints aren't ideal, switch on the misters. If the cap is hurculean (MEGA strong) fire up the coils.
Watch those Cu towers fire up!
Also, when a pesky high pressure blocks the gulf moisture, have the fans located a few miles off the LA coast. Stack them about 10 miles wide, or maybe even up to 50 miles and 1,000 feet tall. This will take several million fans, LOL but enjoy that moisture flow in from the gulf!

And as echoed in the previous post, THIS IS A JOKE!

I like it great idea with the fans and if we combine that with a tip suggested in that article on SDS we can have all residents in the Central and Southern U.S. simultaniously open thier doors and windows with the air conditioner running on full blast. Then have them align thier own house hold fans in different directions to enhance lift and vertical windshear. :D
