Grasshopper swarm permeates weather radar

(USATODAY) — Grasshopper swarms in and around Albuquerque, N.M., are so thick they are appearing on National Weather Service forecast radar.

“At first there was some question about what it was,” said David Craft, a meteorologist with the NWS office in Albuquerque, who said the swarms first started appearing around Memorial Day.

On Friday, meteorologists determined the mysterious objects were indeed the grasshoppers that residents had already seen for weeks around town.
