SRM: Storm Relative Velocity Map

Storm relative images are useful to look for small circulations (called mesocyclones) in thunderstorms. Often, these small scale circulations are areas where tornadoes may form and are typically indicated by strong inbound wind located beside strong outbound wind relative to the radar. The motion of the storms are "subtracted" from the overall flow of the winds. As storms move, their own motion can mask circulations within themselves. This motion is removed to make the view of the wind relative to the storm. In effect, what is seen is the wind's motion as if the storm were stationary. Red indicates wind moving away from the CLE radar and the green color indicates motion toward the radar. Learn More Here
