Abstract : Hughes STX is developing algorithms/techniques that are targeted for use with the WSR-88D weather radars. Phenomoena being addressed are precursors to severe weather, precursors to lightning, and the monitoring of potentially hazardous weather associated with baroclinic front situations. Progress made during the past year in each of the algorithms is outlined.
