Expires 5:00 PM EDT on June 29, 2017


... A Flood Warning for snowmelt remains in effect until 200 PM PDT
Thursday for northeastern Kings... northwestern Tulare and central
Fresno counties...

At 1030 PM PDT, sections of the Kings River remained in flood.
Although water levels continue to slowly fall, water will remain out
of the Main Channel of the Kings River through Tuesday.

Therefore, flood waters are moving down the Kings River to north of
Hanford and Lemoore. This remains a dangerous situation with the
cold, fast moving water.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.

... Weather radar in San Joaquin Valley gets upgrade...

June 27, 2017

The weather radar used by the National Weather Service forecast
office in Hanford will be down approximately for the next two
weeks. The radar is expected back in service by Monday, July 10th.
Technicians will continue to install important technological
upgrades during this period. However damage to the radar pedestal
bull gear was discovered during the upgrade and a new gear-
bearing assembly will need to be installed by a depot level
technician team.

While work is being performed on the khnx WSR-88D during the
outage, other radar coverage is available from adjacent radar
sites, including kdax Sacramento, kmux Monterey, kvbx vandenberg,
keyx Edwards AFB.

A crew will complete installing a new signal processor, which
replaces obsolete technology, improves processing speed and data
quality, provides added functionality, and supports it security.

This is the first of four major upgrades, known as service life
extension projects, planned in the next five years to replace and
refurbish major components of the 20 year old wsr-88ds and to keep
the radars operational into the 2030s. The 150 million dollar
investment is being made by the three organizations that use these
radars, noaa's National Weather Service, United States Air Force,
and federal aviation administration. The other service life
extension projects include refurbishing the transmitter, pedestal,
and equipment shelters.

The tri-agency radar operations center, which supports the
radars, estimates it will take about 10 months to upgrade the
signal processor on all 159 operational wsr-88ds.

The weather radar used by the National Weather Service forecast
office in Hanford will be down approximately an additional four
days. The radar should return to service during the day by Friday
, 30th of June. Technicians will continue to install important
technological upgrades during this period. However some damage to
the radar pedestal bearing was discovered during the upgrade and
new bearings will need to be installed. While the work on the WSR-
88D was scheduled during a time when the impacts due to weather
will be minimal, other radars and observation system have been
utilized to maintain situational awareness for any potential
impacts to office operations.

During the outage, radar coverage is available from adjacent
