Installation of Severe Weather Radar System
This new dual polarization radar is more advanced as compared to traditional radars. Older radars emit a horizontal pulse of energy that allows scientists to measure how heavy rainfall is and how strong the winds are. The new radar technology emits energy in both the horizontal and vertical, opening up a world of opportunity to improve forecaster's knowledge of severe weather. This new radar tells forecasters the size of the raindrops, the size of the snowflakes and gives you information about the shape, whether they are flat or round.
