A Case Study of Assimilating Lightning-Proxy Relative Humidity with WRF-3DVAR

Lightning network data, considered as a useful supplement to radar observations, are a good indicator of severe convection, and has high temporal and spatial resolution. In Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models, lightning data are a new source of data to improve the forecasting of convective sys...
