Dr. Tsengdar Lee, manager of the scientific computing portfolio and the SPoRT program at NASA Headquarters in Washington, and Geoffrey Stano, SPoRT meteorologist, examine weather conditions across the Southeast United States. The main image shows water vapor imagery; the inset images show various observations from both surface and satellite observations. The large image at far right is a four-panel plot of conditions during one of the most damaging tornadoes in the Huntsville warning area during the February 5 outbreak. This shows lightning source densities from the North Alabama Lightning Mapping Array, radar reflectivity, and two Doppler velocity images below. (NASA/MSFC/D. Higginbotham)
