    Heavy weather degrades radar pictures because of the amount of moisture hitting the beam reflecting back to the receiver. It can tend to bend the beam as well, causing a false reading. Most new systems can be attuned to read through most weather situations. Doppler based systems give a truer echo of the presentation than many older systems.
