A hailstorm in Hong Kong / B.Y. Lee, C.M. Cheng, S.C. Tai.

Title: A hailstorm in Hong Kong / B.Y. Lee, C.M. Cheng, S.C. Tai.
Author(s): Lee, B. Y.
Cheng, C. M.
Tai, S. C.
Date: 1996.
In: Weather. (1996.), Vol. 51(3) (1996)
Abstract: Hail is mainly a mid-latitude phenomenon, but this low latitude supercell storm event was observed using a 10 cm radar with a beam width of 1.8 degrees and surface measurements. A strong low-level inflow at right-angles to the mean flow was observed, with a marked vertical speed shear and a dry middle layer with nearly uniform winds.
