Radar, weather radio down during NWS move

Services will be offline during potential severe weather Wednesday

After more than 22 years at its current location, the National Weather Service Quad Cities is moving just a bit east to a new office.

Although the move is short -- less than 400 feet -- some of the services could be down until Thursday evening. With severe weather looming Wednesday, that could be significant as the radar and NOAA weather radio could be offline.  

Several Quad Cities forecasters will be in Des Moines at one of the NWS backup offices to help provide services during the move. However, Davenport radar data will be unavailable for up to two days, weather radio broadcasts will be down for up to two days and observations from the Davenport Airport will be unavailable for up to three days.

Our skies will be scanned by all neighboring National Weather Service office doppler radars.  This data will be monitored and warnings will still be issued as needed.  Those warnings, as they always are, will be immediately available on Local 4 WHBF-TV and ourquadcities.com/weather
