Bahrain is spending BD1.2 million ($3.18 million) in upgrading its weather reporting and early warning systems for aviation.

Civil Aviation Affairs (CAA) Mteorology Afairs Asistant Under-Secretary Abdul Majeed Issa said the investment would make Bahrain's system one of the most advanced in the region.

He said such achievements were thanks to the support of the government, especially Deputy Prime Minister Shaikh Ali bin Khalifa Al Khalifa.

He said BD300,000 worth of equipment had been installed at the newly-renovated facility and a super-sophisticated weather radar worth BD900,000 was on its way to Bahrain.

'Once installed, the Radar will enable us to monitor in real time all weather-related activities, within 450km of Bahrain.
