April 2, 2002 - Changes to Webserver and Addition of Grahpics

Webserver Changes: On April 2, 2002 at 9AM, our webpages are being moved to the newly upgraded NWS server. This server will provide better security and availability. For the most part this move will be transparent to users, but if you have bookmarked or linked to any pages that start out http://tgsv5.nws.noaa.gov or, you will need to change the URLs to http://www.nws.noaa.gov . If you experience any problems, please contact us at MDL_MOS.webmaster@noaa.gov

New Graphics Pages: On April 2nd, at or around 1200 UTC, we will begin producing graphical images of the new AVN, MRF, and experimental Eta forecasts. Links to these images will be found at
As these graphics are new, there may be some kinks in the system that will need to be worked out. If you have any questions or comments on the graphics, please contact us at MDL_MOS.webmaster@noaa.gov.

Warm Season starts April 1st: Please note that on April 1st at 0000 UTC, the warm season equations take effect for most elements in the MOS system. One noteable exception is the thunderstorm and severe weather guidance, where the spring season equations went into effect on March 16th at 0000 UTC.
