Mesocyclone Detection Algorithms Performance on Marginal Supercell(s)

A cluster to 2 merged supercells traversed across northern Oklahoma this evening. The loop below shows the performance of all three mesocyclone detection algorithms.

The legacy MDA performed the most poorly of all 3 detecting several inaccurate mesocyclones with inconsistent tracking. The DMD performed remarkably well in both tracking and intensity on the main meso  The NMDA experienced occasional dropouts where data was unavailable, but also performed pretty well on this storm. It particularly detected intensity well through the lifecycle of the meso.  The AzShear product also tracked the main mesocyclone very well. The DMDA performed best of all three for this storm  but the NMDA also showed promise. -Atlanta Braves
