Convective clouds are formed by the vertical movement of air in the atmosphere and are associated with thunderstorms and other types of severe weather like intense rainfall, strong gusty winds etc. Shades from black to white on scale of 0 to 1 with whiter shade depicting more intensity of convection has been used in the depiction. Also shown is the Composite Reflectivity that takes the maximum reflectivity from each elevation angle of the Doppler Weather Radar and meshes it into one image.  Advantage of this type of image is the ability to quickly assess the intensity of storms. Predicted pattern of Total Convective Clouds and percentage of the sky covered by them is shown here along with Composite Reflectivity over the Indian Region for the next ten days.
