    I think it is today's North American energies Paula. Impatience, unsettling and territoriality is reaching Montreal too. Like it is scratching from and in the inside.

    Must not be coming this far south

    I've got a beer in my future (4:30pm here....), I'll drink to northern calmness.

    If you want to see sth strange (hundreds of kilometers long straight-lined, parallel radar rain echos),
    go here NOW:

    https://www.wetteronline.de/wetter/cala-ratjada

    press play on the little radar player to see how this developed from 02:25 CET until now (and how it is forecast until 05:25 CET).

    Natural? (strongly doubt it)

    UPdate: Seems to dissolve as i wrote this... however, i will at least post a screenshot later on

    2nd Update, 05:32 CET:

    go here, https://www.rainviewer.com/,
    navigate to spain, zoom in until you see all of the country - there are several absolutely
    straightlined rain echoes across the country... and if you want to get goosebumps,
    press the "Play" button on this website, and see... that these things are stationary, for hours
    (whilst other rain echos that look natural move around).

    I'm afraid nobody of you is awake and has a look... stills later.

    hia @meeradas - going to the last website in your post above, I noticed over Tehran a similar radar anomaly, which usually is due to ground clutter, or "ducting" interacting with the radar beam (the radial lines and "sectors" appearing instead of a smooth track, there are gaps..) Same over the Spain area mentioned. I think it is just an anomaly that sometimes crops up. Agreed it does look odd.

    Thanks, Bob.

    Is the situation the same over water? These lines are still there...

    The background of this was the news reporting severe flooding at the Mallorcan east coast... got family there.

    So, then i find these straight lines of rain echoes from the Spanish main land,
    extending all the way to the balearic islands... pulsating, and stationary for hours...
    on my local weather website (daily on it, for years now, and never seen anything like it);

    to verify, i go to this other website i posted - and find the same sh!t, even more elaborate...
    have a look (it's still going on and increasing as i type, focus on and around the balearic islands):



    PS: This thing over tehran is... no comparison, it's monstrous!

    Hia Meeradas - I went back to the locations again, and this time pulled up an IR satellite view over Spain to show the cloud structures. There is what appears to be strong linear cloud patterns in the satellite imagery.

    This type of phenomenon appears now and then with different weather systems, where ground clutter plus ducting from the atmosphere bends the radar signals to give a strong rain/weather area and in other areas nil as the radar is bent out of the way (no reflections come back). Where it ducts obviously is pretty darned interesting. I'm pretty sure its due to conditions happening with the radar being bent and ducted.

    Might be useful to do a google-earth and see below the lines what ground structures are there, such as maybe mountains/valleys/hills.

    I'll post the current images







    I agree - the way the images are assembled over-water appears perplexing and counter-intuitive, no mountains there It would be worth investigating further how the images are assembled from their individual radar locations.

    Although this image below is not in any way exactly explaining the radar "illumination rays", it does show how a point source (the radar beam analogy in other words) using the sun's point source output can be occluded by objects dense enough (the thermal/cold areas and warm areas of the sky and clouds) to refract and bend the energy.. Straight line "rays" show up.. It's impressive to see this stuff happening tho



    PS - looking up the radars used in Spain, the one causing the anomaly over water is the Palma De Malorca radar; it's site called "ESPM - Illes Balears".

    Notice the Coverage Map highlight. The lines show up as fan shaped wedges within the radar's coverage.



    The fans show up on local weather radar their as well, apparently ground clutter due to interference from the land terrain contributes to the "fan shapes" that appear fixed with the weather bands moving through the fan shapes. And it could also be interference from the other Radar's on the mainland interfering..

    ... and how long do you think is natural for these to keep up? - Still on, as i type (almost a day now)... quite a "strong" anomaly

    Good question on 'how long' - is the weather still present (look at the satellite imagery to determine that)..

    I would think one would have to take a look at the historical records from the radar over time to see how long something like this goes on for. If there are clouds and "weather", and other radars operating and/or if there are physical ground features in the way of the radar beam (like what's the radome look like, is there a building nearby which could splash back some of the beam, and so forth).. all that could be reasons for "fixed" holes or potential anomalies to show up WHEN there is water or ice in the sky. In other words, the anomalies are there all the time, but only show up when there is something additional for the radar to look at in the sky (i.e. "weather")...

    Like passing a searchlight through a stand of trees into a fogbank.. If the trees (the anomalies) weren't there, the beam of light would evenly illuminate the fogbank.. We could see the fog then from the light (energy) reflected back at us (the receiver)..

    But with trees in the way of the beam, we see, "holes" in the illumination image that comes back to us.. That is one way of looking at it. If the beam is bouncing up, or sideways and then back again, around something close to the transmitter, the pattern would be even more complex.. Thing is tho, one will only note it when the echo comes back from the water/ice..

    I seem to recall weather fronts with inversions present (hot up top, cold down below) generate the most forms of ducting, and anomaly. Also a junction of multiple fronts coming together (high/low pressure ridges), wall clouds due to intense heating and cooling, roller waves coming off mountains and tall buildings... so many situations could open up anomalies.

    Something that is continually present is how the maps are put together, such as the coverage area is generally "circular" with 75-150 miles radius from center.. Also potentially there may be a time difference when there is moisture on and within the radome that covers the radar dish. Also getting an indication of which radars are in the area operating simultaneously...

    Pretty much way past my pay grade and time available to do such a search.. Possibly Nexrad and Doppler radar developers would have some information in their troubleshooting logs, as I have seen reports from the weathermen in general (being technically not radar hardware/software electronics experts)... that they don't have a technical clue.
