A measure of the upward motion of air in the atmosphere. Since pressure decreases with height, negative vertical velocity values indicate rising motion in the atmosphere, and positive values indicate sinking air. When combined with high moisture levels, high vertical velocity indicates the potential for heavy rainfall.
