Canadian Wx Radar range strobes
In Windy, the Canadian Wx Radar image shows range strobes (spokes) - often even when there is little precip around.
The source for these radar images, at the same time, does NOT show the range strobes. (2nd image attached).
Can they be suppressed?
Note that, concurrent to the above, the avitation radar product from NAVCANADA also shows the range strobes.
@alanthebeast Hello, these strobes are caused by some interruption on the provider side. We are not able to remove them, since they are coming from the source.
@korina , checked other sites/applications with weather radar and their pictures/streams do not show these artifacts. I would talk to the provider about what they are doing to their stream.
What is strange is that the "public" facing weather page (the second image above) is from the service that owns the radars. So they seem to be cleaning up the strobes before putting out their map.
I don't know how you get the radar data from them, but perhaps contact the Minister of the Environment to ask if the "cleaned up" product is available?
The strobes are a radar artifact. Canada recently upgraded all of its radars, and these artifacts came along with them. Horrendous. (I suspect the range of the new radars isn't as good as the old ones either).
See my other reply to Korina as well regarding products that have the strobes and not.
