Based on Doppler radar 3D-composited reflectivity, wind profiler radar, boundary layer Tianjin tower of 255m as well as intensified automatic surface observation data, the evolution of the boundary layer associated with two successive gust front processes in the evening of 10 June 2016 and the intensity of the related disastrous surface high wind were analyzed. The results shown as follows: (1) To the same storm cell, the wind intensity caused by the outflow boundary in the main body was stronger than the wind caused by the gust front. The intensity of the disastrous high wind was related to the maximum descending velocity in the boundary layer and the associated height. The stronger the maximum descending velocity and the lower the level, the stronger the disastrous high wind was. (2) The tower data indicated, as the approaching of the gust front, convergence fluctuations first emerged at low(20m) and middle(120m) levels of the tower, leading the emergence of disastrous high wind by 8 minutes. When the gust front passed over, the maximum variations of cooling and the wind velocity were in pace with each other.
