ATNS Radar Weather Overlay?

Question: Does ATC have the capability to show or have actual/current weather overlay on their radar screens? I remember when flying in the US years ago they must have had some sort of system because they would advise you of weather in the area. The weather always seems to love hanging out at AVAGO therefor it is most of the time impossible to fly the STAR, I'm just wondering if the ATCO can also see that or not?
