A brief summary of major contributions to our knowledge of severe convective storms and tornadoes will be given, based on observations from fixed-site, airborne, and ground-based mobile radars of various wavelengths made over the last few decades. Single and dual-Doppler analyses, comparisons between radar, photogrammetric, and in-situ measurements, rapid-scan radar observations, and polarimetric radar analyses will be considered. The future of radar observations and needs will be discussed.
