COMPOSITE REFLECTIVITY The Composite Reflectivity indicates the maximum reflectivity measured throughout the depth of the storm. It also has a table at the top showing various attributes of individual storms such as mesocyclone and tornadic potential, probability of severe hail and size, the height of the storm, and its forecast movement. Storms that move in different directions from other storms indicate physical processes in the storm that produce a rotating updraft. This can lead to severe weather.
