Beginning Tuesday, August 21, 2018 the WSR-88D radar operated by the NOAA National Weather Service in Midland, Texas will be down for approximately five days for the refurbishment of the transmitter. Although the form, fit, and function of the transmitter will remain the same, old breakers and cables original to the radar will be replaced with modern fuses and new cables. This will help keep the 20-year-old radar operating smoothly for another 20 years. This transmitter update is the second major project of the NEXRAD Service Life Extension Program, a series of upgrades and replacements that will keep our nations radars viable into the 2030s. NOAA National Weather Service, the United States Air Force, and the Federal Aviation Administration are investing $150 million in the seven year program. The first project was the installation of the new signal processor. The two remaining projects are the refurbishment of the pedestal and equipment shelters. The Service Life Extension Program will be completed in 2022. During this outage, adjacent radars that may be utilized include: NWS San Angelo, NWS Lubbock, Cannon and Laughlin Air Force Bases, and NWS El Paso.
