U.S. HRRR Model Radar - Composite Reflectivity (dBZ) 18 Hour Forecast
Simulated Composite Reflectivity Image (sim_radar_comp):
This product contains one field:
- The simulated composite reflectivity expressed in dBZ. It represents a prediction of what a radar picture would look like; composite reflectivity differs from the 1 km reflectivity in that the latter represents a radar picture from a particular tilt of the radar beam, while the former represents the maximum value among all possible tilts of the radar beam. The values are expressed as a color fill with a reference bar of values for each color located on the left side of the image.
