CSU-CHILL S-band 273 deg azimuth RHI scan through a melting layer at 17 UTC on 18 May 2017. Reflectivity (upper panel) shows the "bright band" signature. RhoHV x 10 (lower panel) contains reduced correlations in the melting zone. At the time of this scan, METAR observations reported snow at Ft. Collins - Loveland Airport and rain at Greeley. PPI scan time lapse loops covering the rain to snow transition at Greeley have been prepared. (Full Article...)

High reflectivities (left) in a low elevation angle PPI scan through a thunderstorm over the city of Greeley on 8 May 2017. Corresponding specific propagation differential phase (right) contains Kdp values up to ~8 deg / km due to heavy rain and melting hail. This storm caused significant flooding in Greeley.
