Hey, i was just wondering how i could find a radar image with decent zoom to take a look at a supercell that produced a waterspout about 5 miles behind my house. I have a loop from that day (Aug. 10, 2008) but i cant see in close enough. http://locust.mmm.ucar.edu/case-selection/

I saw another thread but it mentioned software needed to see it. Is there anyway i can see it without any major software?


I might as well throw in a picture of the hail as it came down.


Thanks,
Scooz

You would need a Local radar to be able to see any good storm detail (although with waterspouts, there's often nothing exciting, sometimes nothing at all, on radar)

There are only two non-software Local radar archives that I know of.

UCAR (5 Days)
Plymouth State (15 Days)

I've never figured out how to work this site, but it has a nearly limitless amount of NEXRAD images that you can download for free. The only problem is, I've never managed to open up the downloads once I've received them. rolleyes.gif
