...NWS WILMINGTON OHIO RADAR UPGRADE THIS WEEK...

The National Weather Service WSR-88D radar /KILN/ will be upgraded
this week as a part of its Service Life Extension Program (SLEP).
Upgrades this week are the first of four major upgrade cycles for
the radar to occur over the next five years, which will extend the
service of the radar into the foreseeable future.

Upgrades this week will focus on the signal processor, which
replaces obsolete technology, improves processing speed and data
quality, and provides added functionality as well as IT security.

The radar will be out of service beginning Monday morning July
31st through Thursday afternoon August 3rd. Any radar data that
becomes available between these times will be in test mode and may
not be reliable.
