Caption: During a Nov. 1 snowstorm in Utah, this Doppler and Wheels radar truck was parked on the west side of the Salt Lake Valley, capturing unprecedented images of the "transition zone" where snowflakes melt into raindrops. The truck, normally used to chase Midwest tornadoes, is in Salt Lake City Oct. 21-Nov. 21 so University of Utah meteorologists can study the structure and detail of winter storms.
