Abstract

A case study of an orographic cloud system that developed over the mountains of S Utah is presented. The storm system contained supercooled liquid water over several hours, and produced almost no precipitation. Because of the high liquid water content, low ice particle concentrations, minimal precipitation, and long duration, the storm appears to have been a good candidate for seeding to augment precipitation. A preliminary analysis of the climatological frequency of orographic cloud systems over these mountains is discussed.-Authors
