- 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).

Overnight: cloudy, low in the mid 30s. Wednesday: partly sunny, high in the upper 50s, wind southeast 6-12 m.p.h. Wednesday night: chance for isolated showers, low in the mid 40s. Thursday: chance for scattered showers, high near 60, wind south 10-18 m.p.h.
Southerly winds over the Southern Plains are causing warmer, less dense air to rise over cooler, denser air at the surface in the Upper Midwest. The rising motion is generating clouds and rain over the Upper Midwest. Westerly winds in the middle and upper levels are transporting some of the higher clouds over Ohio. The higher clouds will reduce the amount of energy lost to space and the temperature will not be quite as cold on Wednesday morning. A low pressure system over South Dakota will move east to the Great Lakes during the next several days. As the low moves east, it will first pull a warm front across Ohio on Wednesday. The warm front will enhance rising motion and cause more clouds on Wednesday. Isolated showers could develop on Wednesday night. When the low moves over the southern Great Lakes on Thursday, it will pull a cold front across the state. When the cold front lifts the air, it will generate scattered showers, and there could be a few isolated thunderstorms.
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
