- December 21, 2017
Numerous updates including:
- Improved GFS model to 0.25º resolution model and forecasts increased from 180 to 384 hours.
- Improved Rapid Refresh model offering: 20km resolution model out to 21 hours instead of 18
- Better queueing system to improve system performance and reduce likelihood of incomplete charts
- Restored Satellite/Surface Ob Charts for Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean

Overnight: partly cloudy, low in the mid 40s. Tuesday: partly cloudy, high in the mid 60s, wind east 7-13 m.p.h. Tuesday night: partly cloudy, low in the lower 50s. Wednesday: chance of showers and thunderstorms, high near 80, wind south 11-17 m.p.h.
The southeastern end of a surface high pressure system will be over Ohio on Tuesday. Clockwise flow around the high will produce easterly winds which will keep cooler, less humid air over the state. The axis of the high will move east of Ohio later on Tuesday. At the same time a low pressure system over the South Central U.S. will move northeast toward the western Great Lakes. The high and the low will interact to produce southerly winds on Wednesday. Those winds will transport warmer, more humid air over Ohio. When the air at the surface warms, the lower atmosphere will become more unstable and showers and thunderstorms could develop. ***Subtropical Storm Andrea*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Monday the center of Subtropical Storm Andrea was located at latitude 29.5N and longitude 68.7W which put it about 300 miles southwest of Bermuda. Andrea was moving toward the north at 12 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1006 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
