Automated radar generator…

So these radar loops are a result of a “work in progress” script that automates the animation process. There are some bugs, and the loops aren’t as smooth or in absolute correct order, so the interpretation takes a little work. Anyway, this is the only way I have enough time to post the radar while I’m doing field work, and even then, it’s already 12:30pm! Here’s the radar from sunset last night through sunrise this morning. Birds were moving over New Jersey early last night but appear to have shut down just after midnight as winds shifted out of the north. Expect some new birds around, but they’ll likely be dispersed across the landscape.

Frames are every 1/2 hour for reflectivity and velocity, and 1 hour for the regional composite
