- 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 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."
Overnight: mostly clear, low in the lower 60s. Friday: sunny in the morning, more clouds in the afternoon, chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind south 6-14 m.p.h. Friday night: mostly cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Saturday: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, high in the lower 80s, wind southwest 8-17 m.p.h.
Three high pressure systems will influence our weather during the next several days. A high pressure system centered over Quebec contains slightly drier air. A high pressure system centered off the East Coast is pushing against the high over Quebec. As the high over Quebec moves farther east on Friday, clockwise flow around the high off the East Coast will generate southerly winds which will bring warmer and more humid air back to Ohio. The atmosphere over the state could be just warm and humid enough on Friday afternoon to give us a chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms. A third high pressure system over central Canada is moving southward into the northern U.S. and it is pushing a cold front eastward. As the cold front gets closer to Ohio on Saturday afternoon it could provide more rising motion and give us a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Andres** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Storm Andres was located at latitude 11.8N and longitude 113.3W which put it about 800 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Andres was moving toward the west-northwest at 10 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 70 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 994 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
