Coastal Radar Progressing Quickly

June 16, 2011

The new Langley Hill radar project is progressing rapidly towards completion…Professor Cliff Mass of the UW has a great website here:  http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~cliff/Langleyradar.html detailing the progress.

By this Fall we’ll have our first good view of coastal storms via radar.  You folks in Astoria, Seaside, and all the way down into Tillamook County will have far better radar coverage than you’ve ever seen in the past.  Now we just need another one down around Florence or Coos Bay!
