The National Weather Service Wilmington Ohio /Kiln/ WSR-88D Doppler radar is undergoing extended maintenance to replace a key central component. Once this maintenance is complete...the radar will undergo testing and calibration over several days to ensure quality data.

The outage is expected from today through the day on Friday...August 1st. Users may see radar data before then /especially at night/ as calibration and testing begins...but technicians indicate this data should not be relied upon and will be subject to outages or inaccuracies.

NWS meteorologists will use surrounding WSR-88D radars as well as FAA terminal Doppler weather radars /tdwr/ near Cincinnati...Columbus...and Dayton for hazardous weather detection during this outage.

A public information statement will be sent when the radar returns to full operating capacity at the end of the week.
