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 storm chasing 'sub interests' that I've taken to over the past few years. In fact, high on my list of possible future chases is a trip to the desert southwest to pursue 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 chase-worthy subjects in themselves during times of weak upper flow and high precipitable water, when slow-moving thunderstorms are common.
