Radar Upgrade Coming to Wichita NWS Office

The National Weather Service office in Wichita is getting a new, state-of-the-art radar upgrade. It will be just the third site in the nation to receive the so-called "dual-polarization" technology. Dick Elder, the meteorologist-in-charge at the Wichita office, says this kind of radar provides an additional tool for looking inside storms:

The Wichita office's current radar is scheduled to be shut down today (WED) to begin the installation of the new technology. Elder says the upgraded radar is expected to be up and running by Monday the 18th.
