3-D Doppler Radar Technology…What We Use.

Good Morning…actually very early morning (12:18am)…

Still analyzing the data from the Moore Oklahoma Tornado. The doppler radar technology we use in our weather department is state of the art when it comes to tracking severe weather.  One feature we use is called “X Vision”, in which we can take cross sections of severe thunderstorms and look inside of them in real time. Keep in mind, tornadoes form inside of severe thunderstorms only. Looking inside of these huge storms gives us a wealth of information about the inner structure of the storm, and clues us in on things like hail, tornado, and wind (microbursts) potential. This in turn allows us to give you specific and advanced warnings of dangerous weather headed your way. Stay tuned to Eyewitness News during severe thunderstorm season to see how we use “X-Vision” technology.

The image below is a dramtic 3D look at the Moore Oklahoma thunderstorm and tornado. You can clearly see the funnel touching theX Vision Moore OK Tornado ground just outside of Moore.  Other clues are the hieght of the storm (50, 000 feet !!)..along with the location of large hail.

 Thanks for logging on….Tony R Petrarca
