HDOB data from the Coyote UAS, which is launched from NOAA P-3 aircraft, will be manually added into the system when available. An archive of this data, which updates hourly, is temporarily available here. For more information, please see the "Read_Me.txt" file located in the temporary archive.

Satellite data does not currently automatically update in the Cesium display. You must refresh the page to update satellite imagery. Additional testing will continue with the new Cesium display. Updates will be made to the Cesium display at times that require refreshing one of the scripts of the display. Even refreshing the page may sometimes not work. You may have to visit the script here and refresh it manually before visiting the display if you have visited it previously.
System Status: Updating every 5 minutes. (summary)

Last check for data: Friday, Oct. 20, 2017 5:00 Z

A check of the NHC's recon archive also occurs as needed.
