Precipitation - radar 5 minute probability of hail over the Netherlands

Gridded files of probability of hail from radar over the Netherlands and surrounding area. Based on 14 radar scans by two radars in Herwijnen and Den Helder. Time interval is 5 minutes. See data set radar_tar_hail_warning_5min/1.0 for an archive that goes back to 2008.
