At the end of the work day on 17 May 2018; a developing area of showers and thunderstorms was visible just to the southeast and east of the CHILL site. To expedite data collection, only the X-band channel was brought up. A short period of PPI and RHI scanning was done with the X-band time series archiver operating. Due to the short range to much of the echo system, the various radar measurements were made under good SNR conditions.)
