The CSU-CHILL National Weather Radar Facility, located in Greeley, CO, is an advanced, transportable dual-polarized S-band weather radar system. The facility is operated by Colorado State University, under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation and the University.
CSU-CHILL reflectivity data in a low elevation angle PPI scan through a thunderstorm line. Three dimensional air motions in this echo system have been synthesized based on data collected by the CSU-CHILL and NWS KFTG radars. The locations of VHF radiation sources detected by the Northern Colorado Lightning Mapping Array (LMA) system have been combined with selected results from the CHILL - KFTG dual Doppler analysis volume.
Reflectivity data collected in an RHI scan that intercepted both the intense core and the anvil echo regions of a thunderstorm located ~13 km northeast of the CSU-CHILL radar on 24 June 2014. This storm produced heavy rain and pea sized hailstones at the radar site.
