OKLAHOMA CITY- Being the only television station with two LIVE Doppler radars gives our viewers an unparalleled view of incoming severe weather, and the quickest warning for dangerous storms!
In today's ever-advancing meteorology, radar is the best tool for tracking storms, but it has its limitations. With a single Doppler radar, you can only see one side of the storm, and any rotation can only be seen in one dimension. KFOR's twin Doppler radars are strategically placed on the north and southwest side of OKC to give our leading team of meteorologists the power to see all sides of the storms, and bring you this view LIVE!
Also, our radars are powerful. KFOR's south Doppler radar pumps out a thunderous one million watts of energy! Rain, hail, and even tornadic winds often obscure lower power radars, making it harder for them to see what is going on in the storm. Having the most power means we can see further across the state, cut through rain, and give you the best possible view of anything from storms to hail to Oklahoma's paralyzing ice storms. This means your family has the best warning, and the clearest look at any storm in the state!
The result of twin Doppler radars and 1,000,000 watts of power is a better look at Oklahoma's fiercest weather, the quickest warnings, and more power to keep you 4Warned!
