Description information

Downdraft CAPE:DCAPE can be used to estimate the potential strength of rain-cooled downdrafts with thunderstorms convection, and is similar to CAPE. Larger DCAPE values are associated with stronger downdrafts. Generally, forecasters refer to " not conducive to strong wind" (DCAPE less than -500 Jkg-1), " conducive to strong wind" (DCAPE from -500-(-2000)Jkg-1), " very conducive to strong wind" (DCAPE greater than2000 Jkg-1). Certainly, it is effective only in the area where strong convective happens.
