The WSR88D antenna mounted on a 40 foot tower, scanning at a one degree elevation angle, has a center beam height of 1,500 feet at a distance of 25 miles. I'll let you folks figure out how high the beam is at a distance of 150 miles - its way up there - so the radar at that range may be seeing a circulation, but its not seeing a low-level circulation. (sorry if I got carried away - I helped to design the thing)
Regarding the SW LLC - yep, it probably is.
Regarding all of the interest (and good interest by the way) on this little Invest - gosh, whats the name of this site? (sorry HF, couldn't resist - I did enjoy the humor).
and yes, I believe that the latest convective burst might be something akin to a CDO - but it would need to maintain itself if that were the case - it certainly seems to be the core of the system.
