The commonly used 5 convective parameters of atmosphere above Western Siberia are considered. The convection parameters represent four aspects of convective characteristics. The first focus is conditional stratified instability (Lifting index). The second describes the situation of the temperature stratification and vapor (K index and TOTL index). The trird one is the instability energy such as Convective Available Potential Energy. The last one shows the wind shear Bulk Richardson number.
