NewsChannel 11 Premiers the First Alert Super Doppler HD3!

Tuesday was the second day NewsChannel 11 used the First Alert Super Doppler HD3 in the weather center.  It's a new tool that helps bring you the most accurate, up to date forecast in this region.

Years ago it was sliding maps and live dials. Now, it's live radar from three dopplers in Lubbock, Amarillo and Midland. NewsChannel 11's Super Doppler HD3 gives more accurate data and it delivers it faster than ever before. NewsChannel 11 Chief Meteorologist John Robison says, "We can now look into Eastern New Mexico, back around the South Plains and we can zoom in much faster than in the past. It allows us to analyze storms rapidly.  If there were a severe storm the three radars would allow us to look at different angles, which allows us to be more accurate and see where those storms are tracking."

Back in 1993,  John Robison brought you Lubbock's first doppler radar and now he's debuting 21st century technology that gives incredibly detailed street level views anywhere on the South Plains. Also new this year, satellite images showing landmarks that may be in the path of a storm.  John Robison points to the map saying, "In this example we have Lake Alan Henry.  It's actually raining occassionaly there now and there we have the highway in Justiceburg.  We can give our viewers a reference and say this is Lake Alan Henry and here's where the thunderstorm is located."

During severe weather, NewsChannel 11 stormchasers get as close to the storm as possible to protect you. Out in the field, they too have access to the Super Doppler HD3.
