The colors are the different echo intensities (reflectivity) measured in dBZ (decibels of Z) during each elevation scan. "Reflectivity" is the amount of transmitted power returned to the radar receiver. Reflectivity (designated by the letter Z) covers a wide range of signals (from very weak to very strong). So, a more convenient number for calculations and comparison, a decibel (or logarithmic) scale (dBZ), is used.

The dBZ values increase as the strength of the signal returned to the radar increases. Each reflectivity image you see includes one of two color scales. One scale (far left) represents dBZ values when the radar is in clear air mode (dBZ values from -28 to +28). The other scale (near left) represents dBZ values when the radar is in precipitation mode (dBZ values from 5 to 75). Notice the color on each scale remains the same in both operational modes, only the values change. The value of the dBZ depends upon the mode the radar is in at the time the image was created.

The scale of dBZ values is also related to the intensity of rainfall. Typically, light rain is occurring when the dBZ value reaches 20. The higher the dBZ, the stronger the rainrate. Depending on the type of weather occurring and the area of the U.S., forecasters use a set of rainrates which are associated to the dBZ values.

These values are estimates of the rainfall per hour, updated each volume scan, with rainfall accumulated over time. Hail is a good reflector of energy and will return very high dBZ values. Since hail can cause the rainfall estimates to be higher than what is actually occurring, steps are taken to prevent these high dBZ values from being converted to rainfall.

Girls in nightgowns stomped along the corridor, I accompanied them to the toilet door. Already 10 minutes have passed, but the friends still did not come back. We, the educators, were instructed without urgent need not to go to the toilet for children of the opposite sex, and until now I have followed this instruction without scruples. However, this time I still decided to break this unwritten rule.Whatever happens.

You can even say that this is God's punishment for my betrayal to you. I was the first to start. With Nikolai, a plumber, just two years after the wedding. Although I forbade him to approach me, I still wished. After what happened, my dream was again a water supply failure.

I was waiting for you. I waited for you, as usual, to jingle the keys, quietly open the door and carefully sideways enter, pulling bags with food. And all sorts of things. And I will jump out of the room and, hanging on your neckI will start excitedly telling all my news.

### Now discussing:

As an embedded agent, so to speak. From such a proposal, I confess, I was taken aback. - Anton Alekseevich.
