About This Map
CAPE, or Convective Available Potential Energy, is a measurement of the instability of an air mass at a given moment. Large CAPE values are a good indication that severe thunderstorms containing large hail, strong winds, and tornadoes are likely. On our weather maps, CAPE is given in joules per kilogram.
