The National Weather Service Doppler Radar at Newport/Morehead City is back in service. There are still some calibration issues that may require additional maintenance time on Tuesday. Enhanced clutter near the radar and issues with velocity products may be noticed until the full calibration is complete. The radar has been out of service since last week for a service life upgrade. This will be the first of four major 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.
