Abstract

Severe atmospheric event can cause huge damage to civilization. Severe thunderstorm is one of those weather events. Analysis of cloud imageries can be used to forecast severe thunderstorm. Convective clouds are one of the main reasons for the formation of severe thunderstorm. Analysis of such cloud imageries by image processing can be used to predict severe thunderstorm. Analysis of RGB values of pixel of cloud imageries can be used to show the formation of severe thunderstorm. Histogram analysis of such cloud imageries can also be used to predict severe thunderstorm. In this study analysis of RGB values of pixels and histograms of cloud imageries has been used to now cast severe thunderstorm with a lead time of 6 to 8 h. This lead time is necessary to save life and property from huge damages.
