FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BurkeWeather.com announces new radar software upgrade featuring US Precision Lightning Network real-time lightning display
Additional new features include live data from the Charlotte Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (used by the Charlotte airport), weather watches / warnings / temperatures overlaid on the radar displays, plus the ability to view animated radar loops
Valdese, NC, April 8, 2010: Residents of Burke – and surrounding Counties – no longer need to wonder what the next thunderstorm holds in store for them. All they need to do is visit www.BurkeWeather.com to view the next approaching storm. With the latest site upgrades, BurkeWeather.com visitors can now see if the storm contains lightning, hail, mesocyclones, or tornado vortex signatures. Oh, yes…the radar images still display precipitation quite nicely.
One of the most important storm tracking features has been missing until now: the ability to track a storm’s direction of travel over time. With the new Animated Loop feature, visitors can observe storms as they move into the area. Users can control the speed of the radar loops, pause the animation, run the loops forward and backward, and even toggle individual frames on and off.
Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR)
Terminal Doppler Weather Radar systems are positioned near major airports in the United States. There are 45 such systems in use, and we are fortunate enough to live in an area serviced by one of them – TCLT in the Charlotte area.
The primary advantage of TDWR over previous radars is that is has a finer range resolution – meaning that it can see smaller areas of the atmosphere. This assists air traffic controllers by providing real-time wind shear detection and high-resolution precipitation data. And now it is available to visitors of www.BurkeWeather.com!
