- 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: mostly cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Wednesday: partly cloudy, warm and not quite as humid, high in the lower 80s, wind southwest 10-22 m.p.h. Wednesday night: chance for showers and thunderstorms, some storms may approach severe criteria, low in the lower 60s. Thursday: sunny and not as humid, high in the lower 80s, wind northeast 5-12 m.p.h.
Some slightly less humid air wrapped around the southern portion of an upper level trough over the Upper Midwest and it created a dry slot that extends over Ohio. It will be accompanied by a small pool of less humid air at the surface on Wednesday. A small high pressure system over the Central U.S. will be reinforced by another high pressure system over Canada and push a weakening cold front across Ohio on Wednesday night. The upper level trough will move across the Great Lakes at the same time. The upper level trough contains slightly cooler air and it will contribute to potential instability on Wednesday night. Although the cold front will be weakening, it could provide enough surface convergence and rising motion to generate a line of showers and thunderstorms. The downdrafts in some of the thunderstorms could bring stronger winds to the surface and some storms could approach severe criteria. A brief period of heavy rain may also be possible with some storms. The temperature of the air behind the cold front is not much colder than the temperature of the air ahead of it. However, the air behind the cold front is less humid than the air currently over Ohio. So, the main effect of the front will be to set the stage for a sunnier, drier day on Thursday.
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
