I'm getting better with forecasting, but there are always more questions.
I'm trying to figure out the best way from looking at the models to distinguish between supercell development and QLCS (i.e. linear pile of poo).
Edit: *ahem* That's Multi Cellular Choo-Choo Train, Jenn. (MCCCT)
The way I have been trying to do it is by looking at shear in the environment. If there is little directional shear but all the other conditions for severe weather are there, I usually assume that the system will be mostly linear.
It's worked so far, but I want to make sure I'm on the right track!
