Characteristics that describe a Thunderstorm
Weather radar is very important to meteorologists because it can detect rain and severe weather even when it is cloudy or dark. Doppler radar sends out electromagnetic wave fields that can be reflected back to the radar by things in the air like precipitation. The amount of energy that is reflected back can tell us how heavy the rain might be or tell us there is hail. Doppler radar can also show us how the wind is blowing near and inside the storm. This is helpful in understanding what kinds of hazards the thunderstorm might have associated with it. It also helps us understand how the thunderstorm is feeding itself.
