Mesoscale Precipitation Bands within Cyclones

Published: 20 January 2015

Precipitation within extratropical cyclones often organizes into mesoscale substructures known as precipitation bands. The purpose of this presentation is to better understand how precipitation organizes into bands. We will discuss where in cyclones such precipitation bands form, their structures and evolutions, what controls their locations and intensities, and techniques to diagnose precipitation bands.
