The High-altitude Clear Air Turbulence (HICAT) Project (1964-68); was established to provide fine scale, true wind gust, velocity measurements in continuous wave length, clear air turbulence at altitudes between 45,000 and 70,000 feet--as correlated with meteorological and geophysical conditions.
GTG isn't an analysis of the current turbulence conditions, but a two-hour forecast based on the Rapid Update Cycle (RUC) for clear air turbulence (CAT) only.
Low pressure is clouds, rain, and stuff like that, and you get turbulence, but clear air turbulence is when you get the majority of turbulence.
