That radar you are seeing is the snow storm bearing down on SE Michigan as we speak.
Promising to give us 6-10 inches of snow by mid-day New Years Day.

Maybe, but it was so perfect and uniform....

IF ONLY I could have gotten the picture!

At this point in time (midnight), it looks to be over NW Wyoming and looks like an upside down fan. Flashes about every 4 seconds and is in shades of blue. No movement to or from any direction ... isolated storm?

Happy New Year

Yes, that's similar, if only 1/3 of what I saw.
I think I managed to capture it

I noticed the fan on the radar image near Montana. I don't know if there are any radar experts on here or not. If you email a local meteorologist in Montana and he sees the image or you know a meteorologist, he might know what causes images like that. I suspect there is a reasonable radar explanation for the fan image.

I think I remember seeing some local radar images that showed some similiar patterns. I believe they were picking up everything in the sky including bugs and ground clutter. Please post back if you find anything interesting.

It's a common glitch - I see similar effects all the time with the UK rainfall radar (often over Ireland, for some reason), not sure exactly what causes it but it is quite common over here.

I was just checking back to see if the 'fan' had moved and caught you 'full circle' over south central Mantana. It was in the 0 to -25 colors. I came here to post ... went back to copy it and it was gone!

Sorry I'm not faster or more knowledgeable on how to do this.
