 +====== Explanation of SPC Severe Weather Parameters ======
 +The SPC utilizes all available surface observations,​ in combination with short-term forecasts from the Rapid Refresh (RAP) model, to generate hourly mesoscale analyses of various parameters related to severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. Basic fields are displayed (surface MSL pressure, temperature,​ dewpoint, winds), along with short-term (0-2 hour) forecasts of upper air conditions. [[https://​www.spc.noaa.gov/​sfctest/​help/​sfcoa.html|This document]] focuses on describing the sounding-derived parameters that the SPC uses to forecast severe thunderstorms. ​
