conditional instability

conditional instability
  when the ELR is lower than the DALR but higher than the SALR then an air mass will initially be stable and may sink. However, if the rising mechanism takes the air mass to its dew point and beyond at the SALR then the air can become instable and rise of its own accord through the release of latent heat.
