proposed Sulphur Mountain site was deemed sufficient to provide radar coverage above the strong inversion layer that often covers the Los Angeles area.

After completion of the preliminary and in-depth site surveys, construction at the site began on November 15, 1993. Work included clearing of the site and placement of forms for the concrete foundation. The construction crew returned to the site on November 28, 1993, to remove the forms, and the Sulphur Mountain radar was erected on December 16, 1993. A complete chronology of events leading up to the siting of the Sulphur Mountain NEXRAD can be found in Appendix C.
