Abstract

Severe weather forecasting index values are derived for 129 Southern Atlantic (SA) Coast (South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia) and 98 southern Great Plains (Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas) tornado days through spatial and temporal interpolations of the proximity balloon soundings. Analyses of these data suggest that the 2 regions are associated with significantly different environments. Therefore, the universal use of index threshold values by forecasters is inappropriate
