    Hi Nigel, am a bit pushed for time, so sorry for being brief, but they're wind differentials through the atmosphere - the lower level chart is at the lower end of the atmosphere and the deep layer is right up through to about 6km up.

    You can see a bit more info on using them for forecasting here:

    With indicators for the values here: (us based)

    I'm sure one or more of the storm experts will come along and fill in the blanks shortly!
