Included are the standard surface, radar, upper air and satellite observational products, plus forecast model products. Unique new products include: nine-panel surface images, isentropic maps and forecast model comparison panels.

Helper Sections:

Each and every product has a corresponding helper page that not only introduces each product, but also describes the fields displayed on the map and how to interpret them. Concept helper pages provide brief yet informative explanations about important topics in atmospheric and other related earth sciences.
