GLM maxFED Comparisons


NUCAPS Sounding (IND 06/08/2022 2019 UTC)

Lowering maxFED values effectively highlights the area of strongest thunderstorm activity as seen in this example. This makes the strongest two thunderstorms (circled) more distinguishable from other thunderstorms, especially on the northern circled thunderstorm. It should be noted that this may be even more effective during the initiation to nearing maturity stages. Once a storm reaches full maturity, FED signal may be much higher.
