Enhanced Spotter Tornado Detection

Enhanced Spotter Tornado Detection

SKYWARN and REACT spotters warn communities of approaching tornados and other severe weather. 

Spotters play a vital role in the NWS reporting system because  radar cannot detect tornados.  Doppler radar detects air circulations that may spawn tornados.  Tornados often form before a Doppler radar signature is detected.

TORNADOLERT improves a spotter's tornado detection capability.   It detects tornados within a 10 mile range 24 hours a day, in good and bad weather.   No missed detections, no false alarms, and 100% reliable.

TORNADOLERT performance is unaffected inside buildings and vehicles.
