NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Superimposed Low Level Flow Field
RFD outflow and inflow fields

We have superimposed inflow and RFD outflow arrows on these two slides, again to emphasize the advance of the RFD and the eventual occlusion of the gust front.

[Image: convergence into updraft (69K)]

As tornado "A" lifts, inflow and outflow convergence rapidly increases into updraft and wall cloud "B".
