Radar Resources

National Climatic Data Center

The National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) provides radar data and derived products are on their Radar Resources webpage. The system from which these data are collected is the Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler network (WSR-88 Radar) which began operation at a few sites in 1991. Users can get and view online radar data, access products and publications, review data inventories, access the online library and find information regarding NCDC radar research. Data sets include a storm events database, national mosaic reflectivity images, and inventories from numerous locations around the nation.
