Suffered a major hardware failure, will be replaced with a new modern radar and moved to a better location providing improved coverage for the area. The new radar is planned to be operational in 2021. Until then, the radar image will be displaying data combined from seven neighbouring radar sites (including US radars).
I mean 2021??????????? How friggen long does it take. So pathetic. I could see a year but that is just unacceptable.
I had wondered what was up with that radar. 2021? That’s a ridiculous time frame for replacement. Then again when the US finally put up a radar for the Washington Coast SW of the Olympics back in 2011, it was a 3 year process and that was after a decade of debate to actually get it approved. It’s sad how weather projects tend to move incredibly slowly.
