Default Analysing storm data - Understanding and Reference

http://www.meted.ucar.edu/resource/soo/MesoAnalyst.htm
This will provide you with a simple chart for understanding how to read meso-analysis.
It also gives more detailed explanations, though some not as useful as others...

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/mesoan...php?sector=16#
This is a great chart to look at to check hourly updated meso-analysis.

HRRR models(Take this with a grain of salt)

Meso, hail, tornadic flags for cells. Speed, direction, VIL(vertically integrated liquid). As well as other advanced features for detecting potential wind threats and tornadic events using "Radial Velocity"

HRRR is hardly useful, it's just experimental future radar technology.

Indeed. That's why I said take it with a grain of salt. Although it can be surprisingly accurate 'sometimes'. Sometimes I notice in its composite future radar prediction where a cell pops up..a cell actually pops up in that area.

Like I said, take it with a grain of salt.
Actually, a bag of salt.

Might take a salt mine!



HRRR is good for getting your hopes up then letting you down big time.

LOL i agree i use HRRR to get an idea if storms or going to fire. I sometimes dont use the composite refelectivity but i use the CAPE and stuff but now i use sref and wrf and stuff like that
