  13. An FYI for all the RADAR watchers... Public Information Statement National Weather Service Raleigh NC 219 PM EDT Wed Jul 19 2017 ...NWS Raleigh WSR-88D Radar Scheduled for Upgrade Next Week... The National Weather Service Raleigh WSR-88D Doppler weather radar, KRAX, located in Clayton, NC, will be down for approximately four days beginning Monday, July 24, 2017, for technicians to install an important technological upgrade. During the outage, radar coverage should be available from adjacent NWS radar sites, including Blacksburg, VA (KFTX); Wakefield, VA (KAKQ); Newport/Morehead City, NC (KMHX); Wilmington, NC (KLTX); Columbia, SC (KCAE); Greenville- Spartanburg, SC (KGSP) as well as the Federal Aviation Administration Terminal Doppler Weather Radar in Raleigh, NC (TRDU). A crew will install a new signal processor, which replaces obsolete technology, improves processing speed and data quality, provides added functionality, and supports IT security. This is the first of four major upgrades, known as the Service Life Extension Project (SLEP), planned over the next five years to replace and refurbish major components of the 20 year old WSR- 88Ds and to keep the radars operational into the 2030s. The 150M investment is being made by the three organizations that operationally use these radars, the NOAA National Weather Service, United States Air Force and Federal Aviation Administration. The other service life extension projects include refurbishing the transmitter, pedestal, and equipment shelters.
  14. At 800 PM AST (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Don was located near latitude 11.2 North, longitude 53.8 West. Don is moving toward the west near 17 mph (28 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue through Wednesday, with a gradual increase in forward speed. On the forecast track the center of Don will move through the Windward Islands late Tuesday and Tuesday night. Data from an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches).
