WRaINfo is a software for real-time weather radar data processing. It is specifically designed for X-band weather radars of FURUNO. The software was developed by Helmholtz Innovation Lab FERN.Lab (GFZ Potsdam) and is distributed under Apache 2.0 license.
The submodules of the package allow to read raw data of the WR2120 and WR2100 from FURUNO and further process it to remove ground clutter, apply attenuation correction, estimate precipitation and georeference and grid the final data.
For this purpose, many functions of the library wradlib are used and adapted. The processing is controlled by a configuration file. This allows the construction of reproducible, automatic data processing chains.
The package is publicly available from the Python package index and is already used by a community of weather radar experts.
