Evaluating the effects of image filtering in short-term radar rainfall forecasting for hydrological applications

Evaluating the effects of image filtering in short-term radar rainfall forecasting for hydrological applications

Meteorological Applications 13(3): 289-303

Radar rainfall nowcasting at short lead times has important hydrometeorological applications in the fields of weather prediction and flood forecasting. The predictability of rainfall events can vary significantly with scale as smaller storm features are less predictable than the storm envelope motion. As a result, various techniques have been developed for filtering a radar image and deriving short-term forecasts from the more predictable, larger storm scales.
