Funding awarded for weather radar in southwest Colorado

DURANGO — Colorado has awarded $1.7 million to set up a weather radar system in the Four Corners region, a blind spot in current weather and radar modeling systems.

The Durango Herald reports the state Department of Local Affairs awarded the funding for a system in southwest Colorado, clearing a major obstacle for the project.

The systems in Albuquerque, Grand Junction and Flagstaff take in weather data at elevations too high to accurately hone in on the region where Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet.
