- 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 surface high pressure system over the eastern portion of North America will bring us light winds and relatively tranquil weather for the weekend. The high covers a large area, but it is relatively shallow. As a result, disturbances in the middle levels of the atmosphere are able to cross over the top of the high pressure system. One mid-level disturbance will move over the southeastern U.S. on Saturday. The rain will stay south of us, but the northern portion of the disturbance could bring us a few snow flurries on Saturday afternoon. As the core of the high shifts east of our area, southerly winds will begin to blow and warmer air could return for the start of next week. Also, as the high moves farther away and warmer air flows in at the surface, the lower atmosphere could become a little less stable. That might allow more vertical mixing of air which could break up some of the persistent cloud cover.
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
