Weather 101: Doppler Radar

On this segment of Weather 101 learn about one of the most important tools in a meteorologists toolbox, Doppler Radar. Radar allows us to "see" into storm clouds, and also give us an idea of how large the precipitation particles are within them. The larger the particles the brighter color they appear on the screen. For example red colors mean very large rain drops and likely heavy rain. Radar also gives us the capability to warn you all of storms and precipitation that is headed your way. In fact we can track the speed of the storms thanks to the ability of the radar to measure the motion of the particles. Newer radar technology called dual-pol allows us to look at other descriptive factors of the precipitation such as shape and size. We certainly hope you have learned a lot about Doppler radar in this segment of Weather 101, and why it is important to weather forecasting. As always you can send us your questions and any topics you want us to cover to our email weather@knwa.com. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
