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.
