- July 23, 2016 There was a massive power outage at the University on Friday and unfortunately I don't currently have full access to the server. Data will be missing until at least Monday. Sorry for any inconvenience.
- April 26, 2016 Working on system outage
- 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 - Add help menu with contact form. Modified menu so that it is easier to see on most browsers
- 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: cloudy, low near 70. Friday: partly sunny, chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 80s, wind variable 4-8 m.p.h. Friday night: showers and thunderstorms ending, low in the upper 60s. Saturday: partly sunny, chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 80s, wind west 5-10 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered north of North Dakota will move eastward across the Great Lakes during the next several days. As the high moves east, it will gradually push a cold front across Ohio on Friday. As the front lifts the humid air, it could generate scattered showers and thunderstorms on Friday afternoon. The showers and storms could linger into Friday evening, but they should weaken during the overnight hours. The front is likely to become stationary near our area. As a result, the front will be a source of low level convergence and rising motion on Saturday. It could produce enough rising air to give us another chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms on Saturday afternoon. ***Atlantic Ocean*** The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two tropical disturbances for possible development. At 2:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Invest 97L was located at latitude 14.0N and longitude 42.9W which put it about 1115 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands. Invest 97L was moving toward the west at 22 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1010 mb. At 2:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Invest 96L was located at latitude 11.9N and longitude 24.5W which put it about 195 miles south of the Cape Verde Islands. Invest 96L was moving toward the west at 14 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1010 mb.
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
