Thunderstorm forecast:

THTE-Index:

Evaluation of the labile air mass of flight level 100  (10.000 feet = 3.300 m)
up to flight level 300 (30.000 feet = +/- 10.000 m)
the values are:
100 = labile air mass from 925 hPa up to flight level FL100
180 = labile air mass from 925 hPa up to flight level FL180
240 = labile air mass from 925 hPa up to flight level FL240
300 = labile air mass from 925 hPa up to flight level FL300

high labile air mass = high risk of thunderstorms.

Thunderstorm potential (2) TT

Updates at  09.30 / 19.30 UTC

The Total-totals Index compares only the air in the 850 mb shift (app. 1.500m) with the 500 mb shift (app. 5.500m). The air underneath 1500 m is not noted by Total-totals. For Total-totals are only important the relative humidity. In that way is a high Total-totals at low temperatures not important, because cold air can not save a lot of moisture and so thunderstorms can not be build up.

Total >52 and Lifted Index at or under 0: Relative lots of showers, but only local thundershowers
Total >52 and Lifted Index under -3: Mostly thunderstorms
Total <50 and Lifted Index under 0: Single thunderstorms
 
Colour fill scheme:
Orange = TSTMS (thundershowers), showers< 35 Knots, hale < 1,5cm
Green = moderate TSTMS (lots of thundershowers),
showers between 35 and 50 Knots, hale between 1,5 and 2 cm
Blue = Severe TSTMS (strong thunderstorms), showers> 50 Knots, hale > 2cm
Red = Tornadoes, severe TSTMS (thunderstorms, scattered tornadoes possible)

Thunderstorm probability (3) KO Index
Updates at  09.30 / 19.30 UTC
 
KO index is a measure unit how gives a information's for thunderstorm possibility.
It's based on Temperature data and use the vertical temperature and humidity values.
The KO-index offers this values:
 
> 6 no THST
> 2 single THST
< or = 2
 many THST
