NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Welcome to the WW2010 Archives. The first stage of development includes a growing library of data and products from memorable weather events. Each case contains archived data: satellite images, surface images, NEXRAD (when available), plus some additional explanatory resources to aid with the interpretation of the weather images.

Key words of archive pages are linked to explanatory helper sections that are useful not only for interpreting the images, but also for understanding important topics in meteorology. For this first edition, only the case studies are available, however, as the current weather products come online, this will be the source for accessing archived images from 1 hour old up to six weeks old for each and every product.
