I’ve seen wispy spiral patterns in old non-computerized airborn RADAR system, which I understood to be an artifact common to interference from similar RADAR systems on nearby aircraft. A quick google search finds an illustration and text matching my recollection in this 1990 RADAR and ARPA manual. My guess is that the much more sophisticated computerized RADAR image generating systems used to provide realtime precipitation maps like The Weather Chanel’s also exhibit this spiral pattern, but with much more dramatic and colorful artifacts.
A professional familiar with these systems could likely shed more light on the subject, but as most discussion of it appears to be among the paranormal and conspiracy theory community, which I doubt would be very friendly and accepting of comments from such folk, I’d be surprised if any bothered posting. Maybe we’ll get lucky, and an expert will post something here.

Similar linear artefacts appear like lighthouse beams in otherwise clear skies.
