BREAKING WEATHER:    WEATHER RADAR MAP      AIRPORT CLOSING AND DELAY INFORMATION     


.........SEVERE WEATHER MAP.....

How does the radar work? NEXRAD (Next Generation Radar) obtains weather information (precipitation and wind) based upon returned energy. The radar emits a burst of energy (green). If the energy strikes an object (rain drop, bug, bird, etc), the energy is scattered in all directions (blue). A small fraction of that scattered energy is directed back toward the radar. This reflected signal is then received by the radar during its listening period. Computers analyze the strength of the returned pulse, time it took to travel to the object and back, and phase shift of the pulse. This process of emitting a signal, listening for any returned signal, then emitting the next signal, takes place very fast, up to around 1300 times each second. NEXRAD spends the vast amount of time "listening" for returning signals it sent. When the time of all the pulses each hour are totaled (the time the radar is actually transmitting), the radar is "on" for about 7 seconds each hour. The remaining 59 minutes and 53 seconds are spent listening for any returned signals. The ability to detect the "shift in the phase" of the pulse of energy makes NEXRAD a Doppler radar. The phase of the returning signal typically changes based upon the motion of the raindrops (or bugs, dust, etc.). This Doppler effect was named after the Austrian physicist, Christian Doppler, who discovered it.

Officials: Trump Adviser Asked FBI to Dispute Russia Reports

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus asked top FBI officials to dispute media reports that Donald Trump's campaign advisers were frequently in touch with Russian intelligence agents during the election, according to three White House officials who confirmed the unusual contact with law enforcement involved in a pending investigation.

The officials said that Priebus' Feb. 15 request to FBI Director James Comey and deputy director Andrew McCabe came as the White House sought to discredit a New York Times report about contacts between Russian intelligence officials and members of Trump's 2016 campaign team.

White House: Crackdown Likely on Recreational Marijuana

The Justice Department will step up enforcement of federal law against recreational marijuana, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Thursday, offering the Trump administration's strongest indication to date of a looming crackdown on the drug, even as a solid majority of Americans believe it should be legal.

"I do believe you'll see greater enforcement of it,'' Spicer said in response to a question during a news conference. But he offered no details about what such enforcement would entail. More...




Local US Officials Question Legality of ICE Holds

Over the years, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has issued immigration holds, also known as detainers, on individuals the agency has been seeking to deport.

But despite the latest guidance on immigration enforcement, the practice has sheriffs' departments skeptical about the legality of these requests.

Between Friday and Wednesday, Maricopa County, Arizona, released 33 undocumented immigrants from custody even though all had ICE detainers. More...




Top Aide Says Trump Taking Control of US Conservative Movement

President Donald Trump has taken a firm hold on the U.S. conservative political movement and is pushing it in his own direction, one of his top advisers said Thursday.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the largest annual gathering of American conservatives, Kellyanne Conway said Trump had tapped into something that swung conservatives behind him even though he hasn't always aligned with their beliefs.

"He went right to the grass roots and brought you along," she said. More...
