Doppler radar data/image history?


Recommended Posts

Been searching around for a website that shows maybe the past 24-72hr doppler radar images by state or region. Is there any such site or source for this data? Will continue searching.... thanks if you can point me in the right direction. Northern IN / Southern MI area.

RC,

What specifically are you looking for? Most weather stations have links to regional doppler radar feeds. That a place you can try.

Hey RC. Don't know of any site that provides past imagery spaning a 1-3 day range, but the "National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration" , NOAA fer short, provides excellent past 2-3 hr. looping doppler radar mosaic imagery as well as other satalite imageries as well as 7-day forecasts for any and all zip-codes in all 50 states, if there's anything the feds do thats of any good fer average folks, it's that they provide a few awsome, quality web sites like NOAA, USGS, JPL, and NASA, but the best, most accurate weather yer gonna get, will be from NOAA.

You can retrieve Nexrad data several years back. You need to Google:

Weather and Climate Tool Kit. And follow instructions.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. Got a single 2nd party 911 report about a "fireball" in the sky, continuing northbound at low angle, low altitude (guy guessed 2kft), person thought it mighta been an airplane. Airport approach/tower didn't have any odd reports, nothing on the news.

Got home and the other half said yeah, it flew right over the neighbors there, really low, "it like blew up, got smaller, kept going, blew up again then broke up and that was it".

Any time you see something like that, I suggest filling out the AMS report. The witness statements mean a lot to the folks that track these fireballs. You can also go there and see the reports of others who witnessed it as well.

It's important to note fine details. Accurate direction is key at these points..

A. Where you first saw it. An exact time...look at a cell phone or other accurate time source....don't guess.

B. Where it blew up or went dark (stopped glowing).

C. Note any other significant event within the time you witnessed it...a break up, multiple fragments, color, brightness.

D Where you last saw it.

E. If you heard an explosion or rumbling or any noise from it. Any delay in sound... a few seconds, a few minutes etc.

Take your time and use ground base landmarks from where you were to get as accurate as you can on direction. And then leave a detailed notes about it....anything that may help a tracker.
