- October 16, 2014 Radar Mosaics restored.
- October 14, 2014 Upgraded GEMPAK (Map generation) software to latest version.
- October 2, 2014 - As stated, will work with adjusting satellite imagery, particularly oceanic views, this weekend - (Thanks for reporting, Bruce)
- October 2, 2014 - Fixed issue whereby MOS files were appearing out of order at the start of the month (Thanks for notifying us of this bug, Scott!)
- September 30, 2014 - East and West Coast Satellite Images fixed and will arrive with increased frequency and for visible, improved resolution. Will work on tropics next; may add Alaska and Hawaii if sufficient demand exists.
- September 27, 2014 - Web Server restored after hardware failure.
- September 21, 2014 - U.S. Temperature map restored (colors were not outputting correctly due to a corrupt grid file)
- January 19, 2014 - Fixed accounts so that you don't have to login as often; cookies should last one year and are no longer tied to IP address. (I.e. if you are using a phone or laptop and go elsewhere, you should still be logged in).

- January 18, 2014 - Numerous server upgrades and fixes.
- June 2, 2013 - Switched Satellite products to GOES-14 due to GOES-13 outage.
- May 12, 2013 - Added Severe Wx related model products to Severe Wx landing page."
Overnight: isolated snow showers, turning colder, temperature decreasing to around 20 by morning. Friday: flurries in the morning, decreasing cloudiness in the afternoon, cold and windy, temperature nearly steady in the upper teens, wind northwest 10-20 m.p.h. Friday night: mostly clear, low in the lower teens. Saturday: partly sunny in the morning, increasing cloudiness in the afternoon, high in the upper 20s, wind southwest 5-14 m.p.h.
A large cold high pressure system extends from Canada to Texas. The high will move eastward on Friday and the clockwise circulation around it will produce cold northwesterly winds. As those winds blow across the Great Lakes they could produce isolated snow showers. The center of the high pressure system will move across Ohio on Friday night. The combination of clearer skies, light winds and snow cover could allow the temperature to fall to near 10 degrees by Saturday morning. The center of the high will move east of Ohio on Saturday and a low pressure system will develop over the Central U.S. The low will move toward the Ohio River Valley. As slightly warmer air moves over colder denser air at the surface, clouds will increase later on Saturday. The low will bring precipitation to our area on Sunday. The type and amount of precipitation will be determined by the track of the low pressure system.
We are in the process of building our Tropical Weather Pages. These pages will feature valuable information issued by the National Hurricane Center, Satellite imagery, and more!Go to Tropical Weather
These pages feature links to textual products issued by the Storm Prediction Center and severe weather index charts. We will add model data geared specifically to forecasting for severe weather soon!Go to Severe Weather
