A small composite mean sample of days with significant tornadoes in and around the Washington, D.C. area at various heights of the atmosphere is below. From low level (near surface — 850mb) to cloud level (700 mb) and then into the mid-and-upper levels (500mb). These can be useful to compare a modeled setup to see if there is any extra risk of more than the garden variety activity.
Hopefully I’ll return to this in more depth as it’s something I’ve been meaning to do.
This post is part of a Washington, D.C. climatology series, both on and off site, that will be maintained at semi regular intervals.
