- 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).

Overnight: mostly clear, low in the lower 30s. Wednesday: sunny, high in the lower 60s, wind becoming south 5-14 m.p.h. Wednesday night: mostly clear, but not as cold, low near 40. Thursday: windy and warmer, increasing cloudiness, chance for scattered afternoon and evening showers and isolated thunderstorms, high near 70, wind southwest 15-25 m.p.h.
The southern end of a high pressure system over eastern Canada is extending southward over Ohio and will bring us another cool night. The center of the high will move east of Ohio on Wednesday. Sunshine and light southerly winds could allow the temperature to climb into the 60s by Wednesday afternoon. A low pressure system over western Canada will move rapidly eastward and pull a cold front across the northern portion of the U.S. The high pressure system near the East Coast and the low pressure system approaching the Great Lakes will combine to generate strong southerly flow on Thursday. The southerly flow will bring warmer and moister air to Ohio. The approaching cold front will supply a source of rising motion which will generate increasing cloudiness and a chance for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. A second low pressure system could form along the cold front as it nears the state on Thursday night and increase the probability for showers and thunderstorms. **Super Typhoon Maysak** Super Typhoon Maysak continues to be the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. The maximum sustained wind speed is 160 m.p.h. The center passed within 100 miles of Yap on Tuesday. Maysak is about 1000 miles east-southeast of Luzon and it is moving toward the west-northwest at 13 m.p.h. It could approach the northern Philippines as a typhoon in about four days.
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
