The Day Convection RGB was designed to emphasize convection with strong updrafts and small ice particles indicative of severe storms. This RGB helps increase nowcasting capabilities of severe storms by identifying the early stage of strong convection. Knowing the microphysical characteristics of convective clouds helps determine storm strength and stage to improve nowcasts and short-term forecasts. Bright yellow in the RGB indicates strong updrafts prior to the mature storm stage.
