Details of convective and mesoscale variability of a dryline on 22 May 2002 are characterized. Convective plumes (or updrafts) were found to be moister than downdrafts by about 1g/kg and contained magnitudes of 1.5 m s -1 at 2 km altitude. A synthesis of aircraft, lidar and other ancillary data collected during the dryline are discussed.
