Hello, I have been trying to look up this topic for a while and have not been able to find any topic on this. But here's my deal: I use a radar application called "GRLevelX" More specifically, GRLevel3 2.00. I am looking to start weather forecasting and coverage on my own terms, I'll get to my story later on in a different post. The point I want to bring up today, is that I'd like to save the radar scans that I receive from any radar site and have it locally saved to my computer so that I can go back in the future after a hurricane, tornado outbreak or general thunderstorms to have a recap of the radar/velocity images. Would there be some kind of way to do this? It's basically an archive. |Background: I am a young teenager who was originally involved in politics, but then got tired of the debates and the hate. I decided to move to weather, something I have been studying since Hurricane Matthew. I've been looking to start my own YouTube broadcasts to bring coverage to folks who may have the internet but don't have access to television or radio or have access but are tired of news media hype. I've also tried to take this opportunity to educate young youth like myself to get inspired by weather and maybe one day be a real meteorologist who can save people's lives. I am not about the hype and/or the drama, I am about sending people a message with facts so I can help save more lives during times of severe weather. I live in a state that frequently gets storms, hurricanes and tornadoes, it is important that people stay safe. Most people don't take my age group seriously when it comes to weather. With my inspiration about weather and experience, I hope adults can finally get a sense that it's not the age or the looks, rather, the experience and knowledge one has.|
It is my understanding that Rays from the sun heat the surface of the Earth through radiation. The ground then heats the air through convection and conduction. Knowing this, How come in in the morning, around 10am, the air temperature can be higher than the ground temperature. This morning in Western NY, The surface temperature maps said the surface was 64 degrees, while the air temperature was 72 degrees. Can someone who knows more than me please explain why this happens? Thank you
