It’s been a rather crappy week or two for watching radar returns for migrants. They have been on the move but only visible in the Hydrometeor loops and even then at low densities and opportunistically.
Now it seems KRTX – the Portland area radar is off line! So, here is a static shot of the National Composite. The Atlantic Flyway was screaming last night. And you can see the lack of returns from RTX. I hope it is just maintenance.
