WXlog/20110713 3 Body Scattering


Jump to: navigation, search

A number of hail-producing thunderstorms developed on both 13 and 14 July 2011 (UTC based dates). The following plots show CSU-CHILL RHI scans taken through three different hailstorms, each of which had a 3 body scattering signature down range of the reflectivity core. A prominent feature in all of the 3 body signatures is the region of anomalously positive Zdr values at higher elevation angles.
