Product Overlay Display       

All graphics are produced twice hourly with the exception of the radar at once an hour. The backgrounds are transparent. On opening the page all images are loaded with "visibility" set to "hidden". The loading process may take a few minutes on a slow modem. Periodically update images by pressing the "Shift" key and clicking on the browser "Reload" or "Refresh" button. After loading, the page is relatively fast and responsive. However, due to the previous image processing (if you have chosen the "Current and previous" link below), there will be a noticable time delay the first time a product is selected as well as the first switch from current to previous.

This dynamic web page uses Javascript and Cascading Style Sheets to display graphics from the AWC Official Forecast product suite. The technology is based on the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) RUC2 Model Composite Map Page ( developed by Gregory Carbin.

Note for MS IE browser users: Medium or Smaller fonts seem to look best on these pages.
