Paducah’s National Weather Service Forecast office will soon receive new radar technology. The nearly 20-year-old dome will be popped open today for upgrades designed to generate new, high-quality radar data. The Paducah Sun reports the upgraded technology will give meteorologists the ability to scan approaching weather systems more accurately in addition to creating a clearer radar picture for impending emergency situations.
