Multiple-Radar Multiple Sensor system developed at NSSL goes into NWS operations

Multiple-Radar Multiple Sensor system developed at NSSL goes into NWS operations

Weather forecasters rely on an incredibly large amount of information when they make forecasts and issue warnings. A new system, activated by NOAA’s National Weather Service last week, quickly harnesses the tremendous amount of weather data from multiple sources, intelligently integrates the information, and provides a detailed picture of the current weather. The Multiple Radar
