Abstract : A preliminary investigation of the utility of the wet-bulb zero as a parameter in hail forecasting in the Po Valley, Italy, suggests that what skill it has is due to its correlation with a more basic parameter, the low-level available moisture. Low-level moisture is already taken account of in various other stability calculations used in severe storm forecasting. (Author)
