Observations of Coastally Transitioning West African Mesoscale Convective Systems during NAMMA
Vertical profiles of wind speed (m s−1) are shown in panels labeled (a), (b), and (c) with the mean TCP case represented by the solid blue line. Corresponding hodographs of the mean TCP case are shown in (d), (e), and (f) and for the mean NTCP case in (g), (h), and (i). The colors in the hodographs are 1000–800 hPa (dark blue), 800–600 hPa (red), 600–400 hPa (green), and 400–150 hPa (cyan). Points increment every 50 hPa on the hodographs.
