Operational observations of atypical meteorological features using the WSR-88D

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR-88D) provides invaluable information on a variety of meteorological phenomena. The high sensitivity of the WSR-88D allows for the observation of phenomena that were not observable with previous WSR`s. Precipitation phase, land-sea breeze circulations, and clouds are examples of phenomena that are now observable by the WSR-88D. The detection of these features has an enormous impact on forecast operations.
