This time I would like to use the blog to ask a few questions to the group about how to get started on case studies.
At GSP, we are relatively set for radar data. We archive most everything of significance, and when we learn of something well after-the-fact, we can always download the base data for KGSP from NCDC and then look at it with GR2Analyst. For various other things, I have a collection of links to web sites (most of which were provided by Jonathan Blaes).
I have three questions…
1. If we use the RUC for proximity soundings to get an appreciation for the near storm environment, where and how does one obtain the RUC data and then generate a sounding?
2. Jonathan Blaes has an archive of SPC mesoanalysis graphics for sector 17, but how does one go about obtaining the mesoanalyses for a specific time and date (say, for example, 0000 UTC to 0600 UTC on 28 September 2010).
3. Does every NWS office have a copy of GR2Analyst?
