- 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: partly cloudy early, increasing cloudiness toward morning, temperature decreasing into the mid 40s by morning. Thursday: rain beginning in the morning, possibly heavy at times, chance for isolated thunderstorms, tapering off to showers by evening, temperature nearly steady in the mid 40s, wind north 6-15 m.p.h. Thursday night: mostly cloudy and colder, low in the upper 20s. Friday: mostly cloudy, chance for isolated snow showers, high in the mid 30s, wind north 6-15 m.p.h.
A nearly stationary frontal boundary extends from just south of Ohio to Oklahoma. A low pressure system over eastern Oklahoma will move northeastward along the front on Thursday. As the low approaches Ohio, it will first bring increasing clouds. The rain associated with the low will reach Central Ohio on Thursday morning. Although we will be on the colder side of the front, it is possible that there could be enough instability to create a few isolated thunderstorms. The rain could be heavy at times and with the nearly saturated ground, it could create the potential for some localized flooding. As the low moves east of Ohio later on Thursday, the rain will taper off to more intermittent showers. The combination of the low and a high pressure system moving south from Canada will generate northerly winds that will bring colder air for the end of the week. Some of the ice cover over the Great Lakes has melted and so the northerly winds crossing the lakes could give us a chance for isolated snow showers on Friday.
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
