NWS Doppler Radar getting upgrade

The National Weather Service’s Sioux Falls Doppler Radar facility is getting a major upgrade. Warning Coordination Meteorologist Peter Rogers said it requires the facility to be off-line for approximately two weeks starting Monday, June 20th to replace the pedestal.

Rogers said removing the pedestal is complicated.

Rogers said National Weather Service Radar sites in Aberdeen, Rapid City, North Platte and Omaha, Nebraska, as well as Des Moines and the Twin Cities, will provide overlapping coverage during the upgrade.




Thanks, KORN
