Multi-Radar, Multi-Sensor, Sub-Hourly Precipitation over Harris County

A map showing rainfall distribution

Develop an improved radar rainfall technology that incorporates data from Harris County’s Flood Warning System rain gauges into NOAA’s existing radar rainfall products. This integration will increase the spatial resolution and update frequency of real-time rainfall estimates, which can improve hydrologic modeling and post-wildfire analyses, and otherwise support a Weather-Ready Nation.
