Critical New Weather Radar in the Pacific NW


Earlier this month, the National Weather Service installed a new Weather Radar at Langley Hill, WA.  This new weather radar is located on the Washington coast and will significantly improve radar coverage for the Pacific Northwest including offshore radar coverage.  In much of the rest of the country, we have the luxury of seeing what impacts occur as storms progress through the country. However in the Pacific Northwest, they are the first in line to be impacted by major winter storms (similar intensity to Atlantic Cat 2 or 3 hurricanes).

Check out the Cliff Mass Weather Blog for a great set of links reviewing the new resource (also on Twitter  @CliffMass).
