|Convective precipitation echoes with different vertical extents|
CSU-CHILL reflectivity data collected in RHI scans through a shower producing small graupel (top) and a severe thunderstorm generating 5 cm (2 in) diameter hail (bottom). (Note: The graupel shower was plotted using a different reflectivity scale. For the graupel case yellow=30 dBZ and the color step interval is 4 dB.)
