Radars

Jump to an area on this page using the following menu...

United States Radars

  • Weather Underground
    This is probably the best radar, with storm track, the ability to zoom in and a variety of other features. For additional radar types on the Weather Underground site, click the box above the radar image once you have selected a radar site. Also has Canadian radar data.
  • Weather Underground's WunderMap - Interactive Radar
    Weather Underground's WunderMap is one of the best weather tools available. It allows you to view radar data combined with weather stations, satellite data and a wide variety of other features. You can choose what you want on the map. You can zoom in as close as your house or as far away as you want. Also has Canadian radar data.
  • National Weather Service Radar
    This is another good site for radar. There are also regional radar views.
  • Intellicast Radar
    This site is also good to use to view an entire regions worth of radar data. If you want to see a large part of the storm in one radar as it makes landfall, this is a great radar to do it with. The radar loops on this site are also longer which is a nice feature to use.
  • Weather.com - Interactive Radar
    This site also has layers such as clouds, temperatures and winds. Also has Canadian radar data.

    On September 20th, 2017, Hurricane Maria seriously damaged the NEXRAD radar site. Another radar, located near San Juan, the San Juan Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR), is working along with two temporary portable short range radars. You can learn about some of the limitations of the Terminal Doppler Weather Radar here.

    Available radars:

    San Juan TDWR
    Temporary Portable Radars: https://www.weather.gov/radar-pr/

    When the new NEXRAD radar is finished, you can then view the imagery from these sites: Weather Underground Long Range | NOAA Long Range

    The location of the temporary portable radars noted on this map are approximate. The radar site locations are based on the Google Earth location of the airports whose codes are listed on NOAA's temporary radar page.
