- 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: showers and isolated thunderstorms, low in the lower 60s. Thursday: chance for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms, high in the upper 60s, wind east 12-10 m.p.h. Thursday night: rain, chance for isolated thunderstorms, temperature falling to near 50 by morning. Friday: showers ending in the morning then cloudy, temperature nearly steady in the lower 50s, wind north 10-20 m.p.h.
A nearly stationary frontal system stretches across southern Ohio to a low pressure system over southern Illinois. Air converging on the front is lifting the air and the rising motion is producing showers and isolated thunderstorms. Some of the storms could produce locally heavy rain and hail. As the low pressure system approaches Ohio on Thursday, it will pull the front north as a warm front. Showers and thunderstorm could become more intermittent for a time on Thursday. The low will move over the area later on Thursday and convergence into the low will increase rising motion. Rain will increase on Thursday night and more isolated thunderstorms could develop. The showers will gradually end on Friday morning when the low move east of Ohio. A surface high pressure system over Montana and Wyoming will move east and the high will push a cold front across the state. Brisk northerly winds behind the cold front will transport much colder air into our area.
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
