Introduction

The purpose of these pages is to allow those new and unfamiliar to the composite reflectivity imagery and the storm attribute table learn how to use it effectively.  It has been put together using credible web sites on radar interpretation throughout the Internet.  Remember that all information retrieved from radar algorithms should be used as a guide, as it is not the exact truth.  The link between a weather radar and a thunderstorm is full of obstacles. This opens a margin of error. Nonetheless, output from a radar should not be taken lightly either.  The several strengths and weaknesses of using composite reflectivity imagery and the storm attribute table follow.
