- 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: partly cloudy, low in the lower teens. Saturday: sunny in the morning, increasing cloudiness in the afternoon, high in the lower 30s, wind southwest 4-12 m.p.h. Saturday night: Winter Storm Watch, chance for light snow, temperature nearly steady around 30. Sunday: Winter Storm Watch, chance for snow in the morning, possibly mixing with rain in the afternoon, high in the low to mid 30s, wind southeast 4-14 m.p.h.
***WINTER STORM WATCH*** The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the period from late Saturday night until Monday morning. A high pressure system centered over Missouri will move across Ohio during the overnight hours. The center of the high will be east of us on Saturday which will allow southerly winds to bring slightly warmer air. A low pressure system will organize over the Central U.S. on Saturday and begin to move toward the Ohio River Valley. The future track of this low will have a significant impact on the type of precipitation we get on Sunday and Monday. Initially, southerly winds ahead of the low will rise over slightly cooler air and increase the cloudiness during the second half of Saturday. The low pressure system could be close enough to our area to bring a chance for light snow on Saturday night. The uncertainty about the forecast increases on Sunday. If the low takes a track a little farther north, then enough warm air might make it to Central Ohio to mix some rain in with the snow on Sunday afternoon. That would reduce the snowfall amounts. On the other hand, if the low takes a path a little farther south and the warmer air does not reach us, then the precipitation will fall as snow and snowfall totals will be higher. Some locations that get all snow could received 4 to 9 inches of snow before the storm moves east of Ohio on Monday. The mostly likely track of the low pressure system may become clearer as we get closer to Sunday.
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
