You can clearly see it on this shot of the mosiac I took this morning. Almost every NEXRAD staion is like that. The news doesn't have it on their radars, does anyone know why it's on the NEXRAD's?

They are still called WSR-88's but they are NOT 1988 technology. They have been updated many times. What you see on the radar pic you have there is called backscatter.They're old? NOAA Radars are called WSR-88Ds and the 88 is for 1988, when they went into service. However I don't know the lifespan should be for a radar, so I couldn't say for sure that this is why...
