- July 23, 2016 There was a massive power outage at the University on Friday and unfortunately I don't currently have full access to the server. Data will be missing until at least Monday. Sorry for any inconvenience.
- April 26, 2016 Working on system outage
- 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: cloudy, low near 70. Wednesday: partly sunny, high near 90, wind variable 4-8 m.p.h. Wednesday night: cloudy, low near 70. Thursday: cloudy, chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 80s, wind south 5-10 m.p.h.
A nearly stationary frontal boundary is near Central Ohio. A small surface high pressure system centered over northern Illinois will move east on Wednesday. As the high moves east, it could push the frontal boundary a little farther south, which would keep the highest probability of rain south of our area. An upper level low over Louisiana will move slowly northward on Wednesday. At the same time a second surface high pressure system over Canada will move south and push a cold front toward the Great Lakes. When the upper level low moves over the Ohio River Valley on Thursday, it will make the atmosphere more unstable. The existing stationary front and the approaching cold front will be sources of low level convergence and rising motion. A combination of convergence, rising motion and more instability will increase the probability of showers and thunderstorms on Thursday. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Frank** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Hurricane Frank was located at latitude 22.0N and longitude 118.7W which put it about 565 miles west of the southern tip of Baja California. Frank was moving toward the west-northwest at 12 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 85 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 979 mb. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Georgette** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Storm Georgette was located at latitude 18.8N and longitude 128.7W which put it about 1245 miles west of the southern tip ;of Baja California. Georgette was moving toward the north-northwest at 3 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 50 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1001 mb.
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
