Note: The warnings did not display on a few of the Ridge images.
The "Ridge" radar is the standard radar data available through the NWS website. The images here are the base reflectivity with warnings overlayed.

The "AWIPS" radar is what is used at the local NWS offices. The "Storm Relative Motion" or "SRM" is the motion measured by the radar with the overall storm motion subtracted from it. This is used to help identify rotation within the storms. Red indicates relative motion away from the radar (which is located in Slidell, to the northeast of New Orleans) and green the relative motion toward the radar.
