ARTICLE: Introduction to flash flood waves
I finished the conversion of an old blog post from a couple of years ago to a permanent 'weather library' article. This is a primer on the phenomena of flash flood waves, another one of my weather expeditioning 'sub interests' that I've taken to over the past few years. In fact, high on my list of possible future expeditions is a trip to the desert southwest to chase lightning at night, and 'arroyo' flood waves during the day. I have witnessed a couple of these in person in West Virginia - they are one of the more impressive displays of nature's power. They are expedition-worthy subjects in themselves during times of weak upper flow and high precipitable water, when slow-moving thunderstorms are common.
