AllisonHouse released an informative article today concerning the radar upgrades taking place across the US. Radar towers across the US will receive new signal processors by July 2017, increasing the speed and reliability in which we receive radar images from the National Weather Service. By 2019, all radar towers will receive a transmitter refurbishment, and by 2020, the pedestals on radar towers will be rebuilt as well. This, combined with the more major upgrades we saw to radar towers in the recent past such as the upgrading of all radar towers to dual-polarization radar, will ensure we continue to have a wealth of reliable storm tracking information at our fingertips for years to come.
