2021-07-08

  IMD’s Doppler radar has not been functioning since May 17, a day before Cyclone Tauktae. Officials said it is not clear till when it will operate but the weather bureau has other instruments to forecast weather, like a high-speed wind-recorder that can forecast wind of up to 200 knots. The radar provides precise information about thunderstorms, severe rainfall and wind patterns. tnn
