Abstract:

Improved understanding of severe thunderstorm structure and evolution is used to develop new radar sampling techniques and warning criteria. The only radar data needed are obtained from the conventional National Weather Service radars WSR-57, WSR-74C and S when in PPI tilt sequence mode displaying video integrated and processed reflectivities. Actual WSR-57 data for six storms are used to exemplify the techniques and criteria.
