PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT

...DAVIS RADAR OUTAGE FOR MAINTENANCE JUNE 19, 2017 TO JUNE 21, 2017...

The KDAX WSR-88D radar at Davis, California which is owned and operated
by the National Weather Service in Sacramento will undergo maintenance
for three days starting this upcoming Monday. The work will begin Monday
June 19, 2017 at approximately 700 am PDT and finish on Wednesday
afternoon on June 21, 2017. During this work the radar will be inoperable
and no data will be available.

The neighboring Doppler radars at Beale Air Force base (KBBX), Eureka
(KBHX), Hanford (KHNX), Monterey (KMUX), and Reno (KRGX) will continue
to provide coverage over parts of the KDAX area during the outage.

This maintenance requires removal and replacement of parts of the radome
structure. Completion of this work will extend the lifespan of the radar
and help protect sensitive electronic equipment from the elements.
