- 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: mostly cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Tuesday: cloudy warm and windy, chance of isolated late afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 80s, wind south 10-22 m.p.h. Tuesday night: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, some storms could approach severe criteria, low in the lower 60s, Wednesday: mostly cloudy warm and humid, high in the lower 80s, wind south 7-17 m.p.h.
Clockwise flow around a surface high pressure system centered off the East Coast is transporting warm and humid air from the Gulf of Mexico over Ohio. A small trough in the middle levels (also known as a shortwave) will move northeastward toward the Great Lakes in the eastern portion of a much larger upper level trough (sometimes called a longwave). The small trough in the middle levels contains slightly cooler air. As the cooler air moves over warmer air at the surface, the atmosphere will become more unstable. The middle level trough could be close enough to generate isolated showers and thunderstorms by the late afternoon, but the best chance of storms will be on Tuesday night. Downdrafts in stronger thunderstorms could bring faster winds to the surface and some storms could approach severe criteria. Locally heavy rainfall may also be possible. The storms are likely to move east of Ohio on Wednesday morning. A surface high pressure system over eastern Canada will try to push southward across the Great Lakes and it may push a cold front into Ohio on Wednesday night. Surface convergence at the front could produce enough rising motion to generate a line of showers and thunderstorms.
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
