Meteorologists in southern Saskatchewan are a month away from having a new state of the art weather radar in Bethune.

Environment Canada’s Terri Lang, says the new radar has two main features that will help them forecast even the most severe and unpredictable weather.

Number one is the Doppler capability of the new radar are essentially doubled. We’re going from Doppler capabilities of 120 kilometers per hour, to 240 kilometers per hour.” stated Lang

The second feature is dual polarization, which means the radar can see both horizontally and vertically.
