WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita’s Doppler radar is being repaired from major hail damage from a storm back in September of 2010.

The radar is located at 2142 S. Tyler Road.

The radome, which is the protective shell around the radar antenna, is getting several new panels.

The dome is also being repainted.

The radar has been down, and it is expected to be operational on Friday, April 11th.
