The method of estimation of the turbulent pulsations of the air weights velocity in the storm clouds by the moment characteristics of the spectrums the signals scattered from hydrometeors is produced in this project. Using the first moment of the characteristics of the scattered signal spectrum one can estimate shifted characteristics of the air stream, and using the second moment one can estimate velocity spread of the scatterers strictly connected with the dispersion of the stream fluctuations inside the cloud.
