How Is Types Of Precipitation Detected?

1/23/2017 (Permalink)

We wanted to know how precipitation was detected.  So we went to this website http://www.nssl.noaa.gov/research/winter/ to find out.  This is just a part of the online article to get you started reading.  Please click the link to read more information.

"Detecting and forecasting different types of winter precipitation (freezing rain, sleet, snow, and rain) is difficult. We are developing an algorithm—the Winter Hydrometeor Classification Algorithm (HCA)— that uses radar data to sort winter precipitation into categories. The winter HCA combines polarimetric radar data with thermodynamic output from numerical models to produce a surface-based winter precipitation type. This will help the forecaster quickly assess the precipitation event and better forecast how much will fall."
