A well-known environmental feature that is frequently associated with nocturnal convection is the low-level jet (LLJ), which develops as the nocturnal boundary layer becomes increasingly stable. However, in the interest of isolating fundamental dynamical processes, Parker's initial experiments utilized a simplified vertical wind profile that did not vary in time. Therefore, a logical next step is to examine the effect of adding a LLJ to the low-level wind profile during the time of nocturnal cooling. The changes in wind shear can significantly modulate storm structure and organization, in turn altering the transition from surface-based to elevated convection. Of additional interest is how initially elevated nocturnal convection responds to the development of a well-mixed boundary layer as the sun rises, since nighttime storms can often persist through the overnight hours into the following morning. Idealized model simulations are used to study the impacts of these environmental modifications upon the storms' structures, intensity, lifting mechanisms, and air parcel sources.
