Abstract:

The cold frontal event of 20-21 February 1992 that occurred in a densely instrumented observational domain during the Storm scale Operational and Research Meteorology Fronts Experiment Systems Test STORM-FEST was examined. Data were analyzed and the observed event was compared to a theoretical model that contains the basic physical mechanisms of dry and inviscid frontogenesis. The actual frontal evolution above the boundary layer 400-500m compared well with the model predictions, but not in the boundary layer itself.
