Above is an image of the dual-pol technology from the Hytop NEXRAD Doppler Radar detecting debris from the destructive tornadoes in northern Alabama a little earlier this morning. This is a product called Correlation Coefficient that is able to tell the size and shapes of things that the radar beam hits (relative to each other). This allows us, when combined with a rotation signature on the velocity display, to detect tornado debris signatures with the radar. FOX6 WBRC is the only station in the Birmingham market that can bring you this technology and information to keep you informed and safe!
