Reviewing Severe Weather Events With WxPRO

Last Update: 5:00pm on Wednesday 24th January 2018

Over the past weekend, severe weather impacted many areas. Tornadoes, damaging winds and even a few large hail events occurred. With WxPRO, you can monitor severe weather in real-time with several different tracking tools such as Hi-Resolution NEXRAD, live hail tracking, instant warnings & much more.





After severe weather events, WxPRO is a very powerful storm impact research tool. While severe storms are occurring, WxPRO is collecting and archiving several different types of data from multiple sources. Data you are probably familiar with is called a Local Storm Report or LSR.  The National Weather Service receives Local Storm Reports from multiple different sources such as law enforcement, local emergency managers, trained spotters and storm chasers. This information is very valuable in providing ground truth to what is being detected by Doppler Radar. 





While Local Storm Reports are very useful, there are often significant lapses of data where severe weather has occurred however went unreported. To fill in these gaps of data, WxPRO detects and archives NEXRAD attributes & imagery along with many different MRMS(Multi Region-Multi Sensor) data points.

 

WxPRO takes all of this information and applies several different algorithms to allow users to research storm impacts in many different ways.
