Cutting-edge weather radar system in Addison complete

Posted: Updated:

The final component of a radar system designed to keep North Texans safer is being installed in Addison.

The CASA Weather Radar is now complete and sits at the Addison service center.

The radar is designed to sample the lowest parts of the atmosphere, then feed back data five to ten times more detailed and much faster than current radar systems.

The system will be activated in time for the upcoming severe weather season.        

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is the first in the nation to host the next generation of small, near-surface updating weather radar.
