Weather radar to be out on Thursday
The island’s weather eye will be shut on Thursday for routime maintenance, it was announced today.
The Bermuda Airport Authority said the new $2 million radar system, commissioned last July and hit with teething troubles in its first few months, will be offline from 7am to 8pm for servicing.
Lester Nelson, the BAA chief executive, said, “I am pleased to report that since November 22 2019, weather radar system availability has been 96 per cent.”
The radar system, on Cooper’s Island, had several unplanned outages between July and November 2019, which have since been resolved.
The upgraded weather radar replaced the original system installed in 2004.
The airport authority said the radar system remained under the manufacturer’s warranty.
