CONDITIONS

Thunderstorms are most likely to occur with the following combination of conditions:

1. An environmental lapse rate greater than the SALR through a depth of at least 10 000 ft and extending to above the freezing level.

2. Sufficient water vapour to provide early saturation and to form and maintain the cloud.

3. Trigger action to start the lifting process. This can take several forms.
