Unfortunately weather radar is not standard equipment in a C-152.

If the forcast wx for the intended route of flight indicates no known sigmets, then there is no problem but weather conditions can change in a heartbeat. Its always nice to have a 2nd pair of eyes (radar) as a tool to help flying around areas of thunderstorm activity or do the standard technique of the 180 degree turn.
