3D radar data is ingested into a model of the atmosphere to simulate the thunderstorm environment. This allows our hail detection software to identify areas of hail in thunderstorms, including the estimated size of hail.
When large hail is likely in your area, you will receive an SMS and/or email message informing you of this threat which enables you to take the appropriate action to reduce the impacts of damage to vehicles and property. An example email is listed below:
A radar image is supplied in the email with the HailTracker overlay included. This shows a view of storms that may contain large hail in the region. The forecast direction of storms is also included and is indicated by the arrows. Thunderstorms with yellow tracks indicate strong storms, red tricks indicate likely severe storms and purple tracks indicate potentially destructive storms.
