- 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 - 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 clear, near record cold, low near -2. Saturday: sunny in the morning, increasing cloudiness in the afternoon, high in the mid 20s, wind east 4-10 m.p.h. Saturday night: Winter Weather Advisory, snow beginning, temperature nearly steady in the mid 20s. Sunday: Winter Weather Advisory, snow in the morning, possibly mixing with or changing to rain in the afternoon, high in the upper 30s, wind south 6-15 m.p.h.
***WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory that will be in effect from 7:00 p.m. EST on Saturday until 10:00 p.m. EST on Sunday. A large cold high pressure system centered over Illinois will move across Ohio during the overnight hours. Relatively clear skies and light winds will allow the temperature to drop to near record levels (the record low for Columbus for Feb. 28 is 2 degrees which occurred in 1934). The high will move east of Ohio on Saturday and the wind will begin to blow from the south. As the southerly winds bring in slightly warmer air, that air will rise over the colder denser air that is retreating eastward. The rising motion will bring an increase in cloudiness during the second half of Saturday. The rising motion will also bring a chance for snow on Saturday night. A small disturbance in the lower and middle levels will enhance the rising motion and enhance the precipitation on Sunday. This could produce a total snowfall in the range of 2 to 5 inches. Southerly winds are likely to bring enough warm air to raise the temperature at the surface above freezing on Sunday afternoon. If that happens, then the snow will mix with or change over to rain for a few hours. The amount of warming and the timing of the changeover will depend on how strong the southerly flow gets on Sunday. ***Record Minimum Temperature*** The low temperature measured at Port Columbus this morning was 0 degrees. That set a new record for the lowest temperature recorded on February 28. The previous record was 2 degrees which occurred in 1934.
