North Rockies - Is this a normal occurance in base-reflectivity radar imagery? If not, what are they?
Just tinkering around looking at radar images and loops this morning when this caught my eye. I am new to radar and was not sure what to think of this.

In the following link, you will see about six "streaks" shoot NE across the image, What am I seeing here?

Also seen here:

Notice in south eastern CA, there are a few that seem to come from a focal point. This is what made me decide to post about this.
----------------------------------------------------

Is this a glitch in the imaging? Any insight would be appreciated!

I forget what these are called but they are normal and tend to occur as new storms form.

Awesome, thank you. I had a suspicion it was normal, just had not seen it before.
