Large ProbSevere Blob

Here is one drawback of ProbSevere that has been briefly discussed. The areal extent of the identification is not based off of some of the features that feed into it, but rather the dBZ reflectivity representation. In this case, for a MCV and line of storms, the blob below is approximately 152 miles long using a center line to calculate the distance. ProbSevere kept this size of storm for two 2 minute calculations before breaking the storms apart into several different identifications.
