Researchers from NSSL and CIMMS have published the first study to combine rapidly-updating phased array radar data with high-resolution lightning data to study lightning behavior in a hail storm.
Severe weather in Oklahoma this spring has offered opportunities for collecting data.
The tornado outbreak forecasted by the NOAA Storm Prediction Center and the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Norman, Oklahoma became a reality as five damage-producing tornadoes struck central Oklahoma between 3 pm and 7…
As severe weather approaches central Oklahoma this spring, NSSL/Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies researchers will be able to study fast-changing storms using a new radar processing technique.
NSSL/CIMMS researchers have developed a novel ground clutter filter that was just endorsed by the NEXRAD Technical Advisory Committee for an engineering evaluation by the NWS Radar Operations Center.
Dual-polarized weather radar can estimate the number of bats in a swarm similar to the way it can estimate the number of raindrops in a cloud.
With calls for his launch teams to report to the vehicle bay late at night to intercept approaching storms, it has been hard to tell Dave is trying to retire.
Recent analysis of data from NOAA NSSL’s prototype dual-polarization radar during a significant tornado outbreak in central Oklahoma this past spring showed debris from a damaging tornado. This critical information can help a forecaster confirm…
Subtle features in thunderstorms captured by rapid scanning phased array radar could alert forecasters to the potential of severe weather.
The American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma is using a suite of tools developed by NSSL to revolutionize the disaster assessment process following severe weather.
