Radar Images 2238Z

The 2238Z REF data showed the storm was weighted in the lowest levels, i.e., the highest reflectivities were at 0.5 and 1.5 deg elevations.  0.5 deg = 5 kft; 1.5 deg = 10 kft; 2.4 deg = 14.1 kft; and 3.4 deg = 19.1 kft.  The echo top at this time was less than 35 kft.

Interestingly, a mesocyclone was detected by the meso algorithm at the end of the 2238Z volume scan.  V<sub>r</sub> = 26 kts at 0.5 deg; 26 kts at 1.5 deg; 22 kts at 2.4 deg; 19 kts at 3.4 deg; and 21 kts at 4.3 deg. It was only a minimal mesocyclone from an operator's viewpoint (as determined by the chart under the glass at each PUP workstation).
