Loop of unmodified Valley, NE soundings
Set to slowest speeds or use STOP and arrows for best results.
Some of the most notable features... The low level cap increases during the day -- while the cirrostratus veil (see long IR satellite loop) limits surface heating somewhat -- then nearly mixes out by 00z. [Obviously, the cap was weaker where the Spencer storm developed; this is represented in the modified 00Z sounding.] There is sharp increase in upper level flow with time, especially the 150-300 mb layer including the equilibrium/anvil levels, as the jet max moves nearly overhead (see 250 mb upper air map).
