(CMR) An assessment of the Kearney Gomez Doppler Radar dome is currently underway to evaluate the
damage caused by Tropical Storm Grace, and determine an estimated completion date for the necessary repairs.
Starting Saturday, 27 August 2022, radar images will be unavailable during the daytime while repairs are being carried out. Radar images are expected to be available overnight. The Cayman Islands National Weather Service apologizes for any inconvenience this temporary disruption may cause users.
More information on the repairs, including the estimated completion date and how these works will aim
to minimize the risk of future severe weather events to the radar, will be provided once the assessment is completed.
The weather radar went offline last year due to a combination of issues related to the backup generator, the damaged dome, and a failed radar part. The backup generator service was restored in June 2022, and the radar was repaired in July 2022.
