NWS Birmingham: Maxwell Radar (KMXX) Suffers Major Hardware Failure

| January 25, 2018 @ 11:45 am

For all you avid radar users and geeks out there, The Maxwell (KMXX) Radar has experienced a hardware failure that’s affecting dual-pol products. Those products will be unreliable until further notice. It will limit our ability to view certain aspects of storms, but at least not all data will be lost. We’ll have to use surrounding radars for data that we don’t have at Maxwell.

Normal base data is unaffected at this time, such as reflectivity and velocity. Unfortunately, there is no timetable for restoration.
