Arrow A Circular on Thunderstorms

This advisory circular describes the hazards of thunderstorms to aviation and offers guidance to help prevent accidents caused by thunderstorms. Knowledge of thunderstorms and the associated hazards with thunderstorms is critical to the safety of flight. For a thunderstorm to form, the air must have sufficient water vapor, an unstable lapse rate, and an initial upward boost (lifting). A thunderstorm life cycle progresses through three stages: the cumulus, the mature, and the dissipating. Weather recognizable as a thunderstorm should be considered hazardous, as penetration of any thunderstorm can lead to an aircraft accident and fatalities to those on board.
