Temporal evolution of the instability indices at 0000 UTC (red) and 1200 UTC (blue): (a) K index (°C), (b) Total Totals (°C), (c) Showalter index (°C), (d) CAPE (J·kg−1), (e) CIN (J·kg−1), (f) Wind shear (m·s−1), (g) Sweat index, and (h) Map of São Paulo state, with the location of where these indices were calculated (red dot) and the three cities where the most severe thunderstorms occurred (black crosses). The shaded areas from (a) to (g) indicate the values for instability.
