After undergoing multiple years of enhancements and repairs, the KLTX WSR-88D Doppler Radar in Shallotte, located just off Highway 130 near M’s Automotive, should now be good to go until 2040.

The enhancements were part of a seven-year project to extend the life of the radar that included an upgraded signal processor, a new transmitter, new equipment shelters and — most recently — a new pedestal, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) Warning Coordination Meteorologist for Wilmington Steve Pfaff said.
