Abstract
Thunderstorms are the most destructive activities that pose a serious threat to mankind. The rainfall associated with these events cause heavy damage to crops, property and human lives. Studies analyzing these parameters have great significance. Srikakulam is one of the frequently exposed regions to intense thunderstorms during pre-monsoon season. An attempt has been made to study the thunderstorm features over Srikakulam region (18.34oN 83.9oE) using the ECMWF ERA5 reanalysis data. We examined the hourly data for the entire Andhra Pradesh (AP) region for the particular date (26th April, 2020). We used parameters like Lifted Index (LI), K-Index (KI), Humidity Index (HI), Convective Available Potential Energy (CAPE), Convective Inhibition (CIN), Thunderstorm Prediction Index (TPI) and Total precipitable water (TPW) for analyzing the thunderstorm activity. High rainfall activity was seen over Srikakulam region. Almost 16 cm rainfall occurred during thunderstorm activity. LI, HI, KI, CAPE, CIN, TPI and TPW parameters were indicated high threshold before 4 hours at the region of thunderstorm occurrence. CAPE values were greater than 3500 J/kg.

Key words: Thunderstorm, Lifted Index (LI), Total precipitable water (TPW), Thunderstorm Prediction Index (TPI), ERA5.
