...WFO NEWPORT/MOREHEAD CITY NC WEATHER RADAR WILL BE DOWN FOR A
SCHEDULED UPGRADE THIS WEEK...

The National Weather Service Radar at Newport/Morehead City will
be down this week for a scheduled technological upgrade. If all
goes well, down time should be approximately four days beginning
today, January 9, 2017. This will be the first of four major
upgrades, known as service life extension projects, planned in the
next five years to replace and refurbish major components of the
20 year old WSR- 88Ds and to keep the radars operational into the
2030s.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. Should there
be any weather during the down time, you can utilize the
surrounding National Weather Service radars located in Raleigh
(RAX), Wilmington (LTX), and Wakefield, VA (AKQ).
