- 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).

- 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."

A large cold surface high pressure system is centered northwest of Lake Superior and it extends southward to the Gulf Coast. Clockwise flow around the high is bringing colder air into Ohio. A midlevel disturbance will move from the South Central U.S. to the Ohio River Valley on Thursday. The midlevel disturbance was originally part of a storm that hit California, but it still has some moisture. Much of the remaining moisture will fall as rain and snow over the Southern Plains, but a little of the moisture will flow over the top of the cold high pressure system at the surface and make it over Ohio. As the midlevel disturbance approaches the state, we could see an increase in cloudiness and a chance for scattered snow showers on Thursday afternoon. As the center of the surface high moves eastward, more sinking motion could bring us a little more sunshine on Friday. However, northerly flow across the Great Lakes could generate some lake effect snow showers on Friday afternoon.
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
