Glideslope X The aircraft encounters point X, where it enters the microburst zone; a headwind causes it to rise above the normal glideslope. At the center of the microburst, point Y, there is a downdraft causing the aircraft to sink. The aircraft now enters the most lethal zone, point Z, where a sudden tailwind causes the aircraft to lose airspeed. Y Z Downbursts
Severe Storms Severe Storm/Tornado
Pressure Pressure Activity: Airmass Air Masses Activity: Frontal animations Precipitation Along Fronts Activity: Frontal Dynamics
Icing Assessment Using Surface and Pilot Observations Icing Hazards
