The K-index

"The K index is a measure of thunderstorm potential based on the vertical temperature lapse rate, and the amount and vertical extent of low-level moisture in the atmosphere."

Oh - and of course I had to google that - but there we go. At least I learned something I didn't know before :geek:

Quality of Snow
Defined by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) as The amount of ice in a snow sample expressed as a percent of the weight of the sample.

I know this very well. It meant that I destroyed a shovel this weekend (using a cheap one to shovel heavy snow) - but it still is more-or less OK to shovel the (more than half metre) of fluffy light stuff that fell down/blew sideways onto my path this morning.

Practical applicatio of Boffin definitions. See - I am sort of paying attention ()o

Scirocco.
Volkswagen once called its cars after winds. ( 70's I think ) Passat is an other one.
