New radar can tell the difference between snow and rain

I hate riding in the rain, but I don’t mind riding in the snow. This new type of radar is relevant to my interests.

Meteorologists will be able to provide the public with more accurate information on the type and amount of precipitation that comes with New England storms, thanks to an upgrade to the Doppler radar used by the National Weather Service in Taunton, a meteorologist for the service said yesterday.

The upgrade will provide meteorologists with a three-dimensional image of water particles — known to meteorologists as hydrometeors — by sending and receiving pulses of radio waves in both a horizontal and vertical direction, said meteorologist Stephanie Dunten.

Thanks, Jessie!
