Live Local Lightning & Radar Data Provided By Thor Guard L75 Lightning Detection & Prediction Hardware. Emergency notifications for severe weather provided by ThorPCX software.

Note: To View Radar Image Please Click The Map Tab.

Notification Levels: Note: In the notification area the status indicates the lightning risk as well as any other hazard risk's such as weather warnings.

WAITING: If WAITING is displayed it means the L75GENS hardware & software is on Stand-By mode waiting for weather to develop

TESTING: If TESTING is displayed this means the L75GENS hardware & software is in it's daily test mode to verify proper hardware performance.

ALL CLEAR: No Threat of lightning or other hazardous weather situations at this time

CAUTION: No immediate threat but situation should be monitored if storms are developing or are in the area.  A “Caution”  level is normal with most rain showers.

WARNING: Thunderstorms and/or severe weather are in the area.  The area should be closely monitored.

RED ALERT: Thunderstorms and/or severe weather is in the area. RED ALERT means the potential for cloud to ground lightning is very high, all outdoor activities should stop. Seek safe indoor shelter immediately!

EMERGENCY: If EMERGENCY is displayed this means the Dixon area is under a Tornado Warning. Take life saving actions and seek safe shelter immediately!

Located below the Lightning Alert and Emergency Alert indication area is the Lightning data Area that contains the following information:

LHL: Lightning Hazard Level. A number from 1 to 9. 1 means a 10% chance of cloud to ground lightning and 9 which means 90% chance of cloud to ground lightning within the current Sensor Range (12 - 15 miles from Dixon) An LHL greater than 4 indicates lightning is occurring or has the potential of occurring in the Dixon area.

DI: Dynamic Index. Number from 1.0 to 9.9. “1” means 10% chance and 9.9 means 99% chance of Cloud to ground lightning within close proximity of our sensor location in downtown Dixon. (12-15 Miles) A DI > 5 means there is lightning in the Dixon area!

AD: Alarm Level. Any time you get a Red Alert, the AD will start at 10 which means you have at least 10 minutes until you could get an All Clear signal. The AD will reset itself to 10 until all static charge is out of the area and safe outdoor activity can resume. The AD will count down when no “new” surges in energy have been detected.

FCC: Field Collapse Count. Basically, the FCC number gives you an idea of how many lightning strikes have occurred within the current sensor range of 12 to 15 miles from Dixon. It is helpful to watch the FCC count as the system goes from All clear to Caution to higher lightning risk levels as storms approach or develop.

PLEASE NOTE: If EMERGENCY status is displayed, This indicates a TORNADO WARNING is currently in effect for the city of Dixon, MO. Take cover immediately if EMERGENCY status is displayed as this means A Tornado Warning has been issued for Northern Pulaski county including the city of Dixon.
