    Default Does weather affect radar/laser ?

    What type of weather affects radar? Can a cop take radar/laser when it is raining/snowing. Does it just decrease the range?

    It used to affect the range quite a bit of laser from what I understand. But with the generation III models, I dont think weather affects it enough to make a true difference anymore.

    Radar, however, is still affected by weather. by how much? I am not sure...

    I do know rain and snow do play a factor in range.

    I think X-band is the least effected by rain, I believe K and Ka will have more reduced range...
