- 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)

- 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: partly cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Saturday: partly sunny, chance for isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind southwest 7-17 m.p.h. Saturday night: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, low in the upper 60s. Sunday: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 70s, wind becoming north 10-15 m.p.h.
A high pressure system centered over south central Canada is moving slowly southeastward. At the leading edge of the high a cold front stretches from Lake Superior to the Central U.S. A second high pressure system centered off the East Coast is circulating warm humid air over Ohio. The normal daytime heating could make the lower atmosphere unstable enough to give us a chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms on Saturday afternoon. As the cold front moves slowly southeastward, it could generate a broken line of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday evening. Those storms could move across northern Ohio, although the southern portion of the line could extend into Central Ohio. The eastward movement of the front will slow for a time on Saturday as a low pressure system develops along the front near Missouri. The low will move northeastward along the front and its most likely track will take it across Indiana. If the low takes that track, then it will pull the cold front across Ohio on Sunday and give us another chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. After the cold front passes, the high pressure system will pump cooler, drier air into our area for the start of next week. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Andres** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Hurricane Andres was located at latitude 13.4N and longitude 115.2W which put it about 740 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Andres was moving toward the northwest at 7 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 85 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 987 mb. **Record May Rainfall in Dallas-Fort Worth** The Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (KDFW) has received 13.87 inches of rain in May, which sets a record for the most rain received during this month. The previous record was 13.66 inches which occurred in May of 1982.
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
