The construction site is leveled for a new weather radar to be used by NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the 45th Space Wing and their customers. In the background is the location where a mock ground-breaking ceremony was held. The weather radar is essential in issuing lightning and other severe weather warnings and vital in evaluating lightning launch commit criteria. The new radar, replacing what was installed 25 years ago, includes Doppler capability to detect winds and identify the type, size and number of precipitation particles. The site is ideally distant from the launch pads and has unobstructed views of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Kennedy. Photo credit: NASA/Amanda Diller
