Weather Radar SOPs

Recommended Posts

Since we are getting the weather radar functionality in the (hopefully) near future, can someone with real world experience enlighten us on typical airline practice for using the radar?  I'm assuming that it's not on for every flight from takeoff to landing (but I could be wrong).  What are the conditions that would lead the crew to turn on the radar or turn it off mid-flight?  I'm guessing that flying into a SIGMET area would induce the crew to turn it on.  Also, keeping it on for night flight makes sense?
