Radisson Radar

Thank you for sending your message to Environment and Climate Change Canada. The Radisson radar is indeed operational:


You might notice that the images from this new radar will look a bit grainy or ‘noisy’ around the center of the radar. This will continue for a while as we continue do some tweaking to the configuration settings to keep the right amount of “real weather” while minimizing the ground clutter. As well, there will be updates to our site this spring that will allow the images to loop more frequently (6 minutes instead of 10 minutes) and will accommodate some of the new features of the replacement radar data including the new 5 letter identifier (CASRA = Radisson Radar). However, on the Prairie and National composite radar maps, Radisson will still show as “N/O” even though the actual images from the radar are available. This is because the software required to make the composite multi-radar maps with both the new and the surrounding older radars will only be updated later this year. If you click on the “N/O” for Radisson, you will see the real data from the new radar.
