Understanding Air Currents and Meteorology

He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? -- Matthew 16:2,3 (KJV)

Convection:

Convective Available Potential Energy (<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convective_available_potential_energy">CAPE</a>)

In meteorology, convective available potential energy (CAPE), sometimes, simply, available potential energy (APE), is the amount of energy a parcel of air would have if lifted a certain distance vertically through the atmosphere. CAPE is effectively the positive buoyancy of an air parcel and is an indicator of atmospheric instability, which makes it very valuable in predicting severe weather.

Have a look at this blog entry: http://balloonacyltd.com/blog.php?s=the-heat-wave-thunderstorms-and-you

Ohio State is no longer statically links their CAPE graphic product so you will manually have to visit their severe weather center at http://twister.sbs.ohio-state.edu/severe

K-Index:

K Index is a measure of the thunderstorm potential on an index scale.
