Lake Effect Storm
Montague (KTYX) radar imagery, October 31, 1:30-5:30PM
|This radar loop is in "clear air"
mode, which has a much more sensitive scale than
"precipitation" mode. This scale allows us to see snow which generally produces
a weaker return signal to the radar compared to raindrops. In more intense lake
effect storms, you will see that the radar will operate in "precipitation" mode.
