Abstract:

The long term goal of this project is to improve our understanding and forecasting of coastally trapped disturbances CTD that often appear along the west coast of the U.S. in spring and summer. The passage of a CTD is generally associated with a sudden change in the local weather from clear skies to dense stratus clouds. Strong southerly winds may also accompany the leading edge of the CTD in extreme events.
