...KGWX RETURNS TO OPERATION. CERTAIN DATA PRODUCTS UNRELIABLE...

KGWX, National Weather Service WSR-88D in Columbus, Mississippi, has
returned to operation. However, a critical part remains on order and
there is no estimated arrival time for this replacement part. Data
might be intermittent, and Dual-Pol products unreliable. Legacy
products are not expected to be degraded.

During this partial outage, adjacent radars are available. These include:
NWS Birmingham (KBMX), NWS Huntsville (KHTX), and NWS Jackson MS
(KDGX). For direct access to these radars, go to the following
