- 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).

- May 12, 2013 - Added Severe Wx related model products to Severe Wx landing page."
Overnight: increasing cloudiness, an early low near 20, temperature rising to the mid 20s by morning. Tuesday: Freezing Rain Advisory, chance for a period of freezing rain in the morning, warmer and changing to just rain in the afternoon, high in the mid 40s, wind south 8-18 m.p.h. Wednesday night rain ending, temperature decreasing to the lower 30s by morning. Wednesday: chance of snow, temperature nearly steady in the lower 30s during the day, wind northwest 6-14 m.p.h.
***FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Freezing Rain Advisory that will be in effect from 7:00 a.m. EST until 1:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday. One large cold high pressure system centered near Ohio will move eastward on Tuesday. As the high reaches the East Coast, southerly winds will start to push warmer, moister air northward. The warmer air will rise over the colder air at the surface and give us a chance for precipitation by Tuesday morning. The warmer air above the surface could cause the precipitation to fall as rain. If the rain begins while the temperature at the surface is below freezing, we could have a period of freezing rain on Tuesday morning. A low pressure system over Ontario and a second low pressure system over Colorado will move eastward on Tuesday. Counterclockwise flow around the two low pressure systems will enhance the southerly flow at the surface and the temperature could rise into the 40s on Tuesday afternoon. The freezing rain will end after the temperature at the surface rises above freezing. Significant rainfall combined with the snow on the ground could create the potential for flooding in some locations. A second large cold high pressure system over Western Canada will move southeastward into the U.S. and push a cold front across Ohio on Tuesday night. The front could stall along the Ohio River for a time on Wednesday. A disturbance moving along the front could give us a chance for snow on Wednesday and Wednesday night.
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
