(WKBN) – Meteorologists use RADAR every day. The word RADAR represents a product. It is an acronym.

In this episode of Weather for Kids, we will take a look at what this acronym stands for. We will talk about how radar works in a future episode of Weather for Kids.

The word RADAR is an acronym that is made from four different products:

RA — Stands for “radio”
D — Stands for “detection”
A — Stands for “and”
R — Stands for “ranging”

*A little more fun with this word RADAR. It is also a palindrome, which is a word spelled the same when you read it forward and backward.
