CellWarn polygons for tracking of hazardous thunderstorms and associated phenomena

Polygons of identified significant convective cells and their predicted path up to one hour in the future. Attributes include severity and likelihood of associated severe weather phenomena, such as large hail. Data is generated by the KNMI CellWarn system, which performs real-time identification, tracking and path prediction and includes automated detection of associated severe weather phenomena.
