Detailed field data and radar observations were studied for a period in which five out of eight storms produced considerable damage. It appears that in many cases the radar offers additional information so that it might be useful in short range forecasting. Certain limitations are noted. Additional data and research are needed before the complete utilization of radar in the detection of severe storms can be established.

* Presented at the meeting of the American Meteorological Society in Columbus, Ohio, September 8–10, 1954.
