*  Calculate the height (AGL) to the base of a Cumulus cloud:
    Surface Temperature minus the dew point divided by 4.4 x 1000
    Eg:      70 -  48 = 22   22/4.4  = 5       5 x 1000 = 5000'
               82 - 38 = 44    44/4.4 = 10    10 x 1000 = 10,000

* Storm Severity indicator: Surface dew point and temperature area good indicator of storm severity.  Thunderstorms forming over and area where the dew point is 50 degrees F or higher with more than a 30 degree spread between temperature and dew point indicate a potential for EXTREMELY strong storms

* Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit & vice versa:
