Short summary
The prime source of the temperature sensitivity of ZDR can be attributed to the antenna assembly. This result is based on over 2000 solar box scans. These data also reveal that there is a 0.6 dB decrease in gain for a 10 °C temperature increase, which directly relates to a bias of the radar reflectivity factor Z, which has not been not accounted for previously. The ZDR variability in and ZDR calibration performance of the German weather radar network are shown.
