Each reflectivity image you see includes one of two color scales. . Usually the storm must show signs of organization. In order for a storm to be identified it would have to meet the definitions of a storm, as programed by the manufacturer. The Forecast Radar map shows where area of precipitation are expected to be in the next 20-30 minutes.

Depending on the type of weather occurring and the area of the U. Notice the color on each scale remains the same in both operational modes, only the values change. Both types of data can be analyzed to determine the structure of storms and their potential to cause severe weather. This provides users with the ability to acquire detailed information of each storm being tracked. The Current Radar map shows areas of current precipitation.

Digital radar systems now have capabilities far beyond what their predecessors only dreamed of. Otherwise, any cloud could be mistaken for a storm. Yesterday's Radar Loop shows areas of precipitation for the prior day. Digital systems now offer storm tracking surveillance. Modern weather radars are mostly doppler radars, capable of detecting the motion of rain droplets in addition to intensity of the precipitation. Storms are first identified by the radar by matching the raw data received from the radar pulse to some sort of template, preprogrammed into the system.

These values are estimates of the rainfall per hour, updated each volume scan, with rainfall accumulated over time. A weather radar is used to locate precipitation, calculate its motion, estimate its type rain, snow, hail, etc. Reflectivity designated by the letter Z covers a wide range of signals from very weak to very strong. The storm must have a core or a more intense center to be identified and tracked by digital radar tracking systems. . . .
