- 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, temperature nearly steady in the lower 30s. Saturday: windy and warmer, increasing cloudiness in the afternoon, high in the upper 40s, wind becoming south 12-25 m.p.h. Saturday night: continued windy, mostly cloudy, chance of isolated showers, temperature slowly rising to near 50 by morning. Sunday: mostly cloudy and windy, chance for scattered afternoon showers, high near 60, wind southwest 12-25 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered over North Carolina and a surface low pressure system over Montana will combine to produce brisk southerly winds over the Ohio River Valley on Saturday. The southerly winds will bring in warmer air at the surface. Westerly flow at the 850 mb level (about 5000 feet above the surface) will bring in more warm air in the lower levels of the atmosphere. The combination of the two flows of warm air will push the temperature into the 40s on Saturday afternoon and to near 60 on Sunday afternoon. Warmer, slightly moister air rising over retreating cooler air at the surface will increase cloudiness on Saturday afternoon and it could create the potential for isolated showers later in the day. The low over Montana will move east-northeastward and pull a cold front toward Ohio. The cold front will generate a region of rising motion as it approaches the state on Sunday. We could see a line of scattered showers cross Ohio with the cold front on Sunday afternoon or evening.
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
