Short summary
This publication intends to prove that a network of low-cost local area weather radars with a time resolution of 30s and range resolution of 60m is a reliable and scientifically valuable comple-ment to nationwide radar networks, especially in urban areas. The advantages of high temporal resolution and multiple coverage in overlapping areas are proven to enhance the quality of pre-cipitation estimates. Long-term comparison with C-band radar confirms very good accordance with POD>90% and FAR<10%.
