COMET Case Study 031: Null Event: Central Plains Severe Weather 2000 Data at UCAR/JOSS/NOAA/CODIAC

Abstract: This case is a good example of what happens when the environment is so
capped that despite many other favorable conditions, no convection can
occur. Early in the day, the models and model soundings showed
indications of the potential for severe weather in the Central Plains
states. By late in the day, mostly clear skies dominated the region,as
the cap prevailed over Kansas, Oklahoma, and north central Texas.
