Beginning April 1, the radar will be upgraded to dual-polar- ization (dual-pol) technology. The dual pol technology is the most significant enhancement to the radar since the Doppler radar was first installed in the early 1990s. The new dual-pol technology will aid forecasters in several areas, includ- ing categorizing the type of precipita- tion which is falling, improved iden- tity of heavy rain rates for flash flood potential, mitigation of non-weather echoes, such as ground clutter, birds, etc., and new hail detection signatures. There will be a total of 14 new program radar products available from the radar after the upgrade. All radar products generated prior to the upgrade will still be available after the upgrade, in the same formas always. During the installation, radar from the Blue Hill location will be unavail- able for approximately 10days--April 1 to April 10. Users of the data will need to view radars from nearby of- rices, such as Omaha/Valley (KOAX), North Platte (KLNX), Goodland (KGLD), Dodge City (KDDC), Wichita (KICT) and Topeka (KTWX).
