The Doppler is Down
The Doppler radar in Blacksburg, Virginia serves Martinsville and Henry County. It’s been shut down since August 1st for an upgrade. The entire unit will come down, upgrades will be implemented and then installation again. The process is expected to take all month. The National Weather Service says cross coverage of other radar sites will enable our area to remain under the radar while not being served directly by the assigned unit in Blacksburg.
