A Doppler radar is a specialized radar that uses the Doppler effect to produce velocity data about objects at a distance. It does this by bouncing a microwave signal off a desired target and analyzing how the object’s motion has altered the frequency of the returned signal. This variation gives direct and highly accurate measurements

Weather forecasters use base velocities to detect mesoscale boundaries, which separate contrasting air masses. Mesoscale boundaries are important, because convergence along them has the potential to initiate deep moist convection. Now, a couple of common types of mesoscale boundaries are outflow boundaries and sea and lake breeze fronts. Sea and lake breeze fronts mark the
