In this paper, the application of a weather radar software for storm identification, tracking and forecast to a short range X-band rain radar observations is presented. Preliminary results are given, applying such tool to high space-time resolution both convective and stratiform precipitation scenarios. Good qualitative and quantitative agreement are observed. Moreover, for the first time, rain derived observations performed by such small radars were compared with independent data. Both high resolution numerical weather forecast models simulations and true observations taken by collocated rain gauges are considered. Good qualitative agreements for both cases are obtained.

Abstract

In this paper, the application of a weather radar software for storm identification, tracking and forecast to a short range X-band rain radar observations is presented. Preliminary results are given, applying such tool to high space-time resolution both convective and stratiform precipitation scenarios. Good qualitative and quantitative agreement are observed. Moreover, for the first time, rain derived observations performed by such small radars were compared with independent data. Both high resolution numerical weather forecast models simulations and true observations taken by collocated rain gauges are considered. Good qualitative agreements for both cases are obtained.
