KY3 Radar is a Weather TV Channel from U.S. MO
On December 31, 2008, with the discontinuation of NBC Weather Plus, the station changed it to a 24-hour local weather channel known as "KY3 24/7 Weather". It operates its own weather radar, called "Storm Tracker 3", near its transmitter in Fordland.
Storm Tracker 3 Doppler radar has been operating 24/7 since the fall of 2000. Storm Tracker 3 is an Enterprise Doppler Radar with a 14 foot dish and 250,000 watts of power. It has an effective radius of 125 miles and is centrally located to our viewing area. Since the radar is located in Fordland, it has an advantage over NWS radar in that we have a better view of hazardous weather over the city of Springfield. In 2006 a tornado made the closest approach to an Enterprise radar on record, one quarter mile, and was able to see several bands within the tornado itself. We have been able to pinpoint the exact track of many tornadoes over the last ten years. Because of this, the Ozarks has come to rely on the accuracy of the radar.
