OU home to weather research project

(Norman-AP) -- A new radar system is being researched bymeteorologists at the University of Oklahoma that could warn people of severe w eather long before the first storm cloud forms.

The researchers at the Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms aren't satisfied with storm warnings that have been issued as much as 45 minutes before severe weather strikes.

They are creating a new radar system that will predict severe weather more quickly and accurately.

Kelvin Droegemeier is a professor of meteorology at O-U and director of CAPS.

Droegemeier says it involves putting together the NEX-RAD radar system and Phased Array Radar, which is a technology long used by the military and the airline industry.

He says the new system will be able to log so many different parameters of a storm at once.
