Current Time:

CAPE

CAPE

CAPE represents the amount of buoyant energy available to accelerate a parcel vertically, or the amount of work a parcel does on the environment. The higher the CAPE value, the more energy available to foster storm growth. CAPE is especially important when air parcels are able to reach the Layer of Free Convection (LFC)

Example of Measuring CAPE

< 300Very weak convection
300-1000 Weak
1000-2500Moderate
2500-3000Strong
3000+Very Strong
