What did the previous slide show?
Shallow convection (CU) was active in the model, despite:
- Temperatures throughout parameterized cloud almost 10°C colder than environment
- Unrealistic triggering of convection, even when considering virtual temperature effects (i.e., parcel much moister than environment)
Next 4 slides show spurious convective triggering over the next two hours of the forecast
