Interactive Radar Glitch? « on: April 02, 2024, 10:10:09 AM » Author: suzukir122
Today my area has a serious threat for violent thunderstorms and long track, mile wide tornadoes. For the last few hours, we've had a few thunderstorms
pass by the area... and throughout this time, I've noticed the interactive radar glitching. A LOT. Right now it seems as if it completely froze up.
Anyone else dealing with this, or has anyone ever seen this before?

This type of activity can be caused by any number of things... a few of the main one being:

* Power to the radar was interrupted (thats just the nature of being in a storm)
* Data/communication to the radar/servers/etc was interrupted.
* The servers are simply overloaded .. remember there will be a ton of people (not just local to that area, but all over the country) trying to access that radar data. The NWS office(s) will get priority over public access (if needed public feed will be cut).

Your weather/radar app will simply show the last available radar image, so it can appear to glitch/ferrze.

ThunderStorms/Lightning/Tornados are meant to be hunted down & watched...not hidden from in the basement!
