We’ve reached the end of our series, How to Use Skew-Ts. Before you watch the video below, make sure you’ve spent time watching the other videos in this series:

This lesson puts it all into practice by showing how all of the above categories link together when diagnosing a severe weather environment with a skew-t. A big key to remember, everything is integrated when it comes to diagnosing a severe weather environment.

The overall balance needed for tornadoes to form is a delicate one. The balance involves plenty of cape, wind shear, and low enough LCLs. Importantly, it is a task learned with repetition.

Let’s start with diagnosing a few environments together.

And hey, now that you’ve done the work learning Skew-Ts — let’s put in more work on other topics. We recommend you jump over to learn about weather models or weather radar.

Additionally, for some further reading, we recommend this technical presentation.
