Indeed they are!  Thanks.

It looks from here like there's an NWS IT guru making their way through the WFO's winter pages as they update them.  Slow but steady...

Too bad they can't do the same for the Weather Story.  :evil:

Thanks Jerry,

Updated and looking sharp.

I've been using the new graphs in my Facebook posts the last month, but had to go to the individual NWS offices to gather them up for our region. Having them 'on site' makes things much better.

A somewhat belated "thanks" to Jerry. I just got back in town last night and saw that there was an update.

Mine is at http://www.rogerscityweather.com/wxnwswinter.php

I just finished making an 'exceptions' list for those WFO's that don't comply with the apparent NWS standards for their Winter Weather Pages.  I think that via this exceptions list those WFO's displaying current graphics are incorporated into this latest version of wxnwswinter.php.

As usual you can find it on my scripts page.

The NWS is asking for feedback on their 'experimental' winter pages:  here

I obviously had very positive feedback... :grin:

UPDATE 2021 Dec 8:  I forgot to say which WFO's now display correctly.  They are Boulder CO, Billings and Glasgow MT, Memphis TN, Amarillo TX, and Salt Lake City UT.  Still no joy with Medford and Portland OR.

Hastings, NE WFO has this week adopted a unique URL for their Winter Weather Prediction Graphics.  I have family coming down I-80 tomorrow and they will pass through the GID (Hastings) WFO forecast area, and snow/ice are predicted.  Accordingly I've modified the script in order to accommodate these changes.

The new .zip is on my scripts page.

Just when you think it's stable....

Boston just changed their graphics to add "_BOX" to the file names.  e.g.,

https://www.weather.gov/images/box/winter/StormTotalSnowWeb1_BOX.jpg

Don't know about any other offices.

Actually, Jasiu, the script still works as last written because they're still creating the StormTotalSnowWeb.jpg series as well.

Thanks for keeping an eye on these graphics.  I need all the help I can get!

If I look at

  https://www.weather.gov/images/box/winter/StormTotalSnowWeb.jpg

it's from yesterday morning. Unless there's a cache issue somewhere.

I was only looking at the 'Valid for (dates)' at the top of the graphic.  The dates on both graphics there are identical despite the different issue dates.  Something weird is happening, but we'll find out tomorrow which way it goes.

Thanks again!

UPDATE:
I went ahead and added Boston to the list of exceptions and removed Billings and Memphis because they're now compliant with the standard naming convention.  Some WFO's haven't updated their Winter Pages, like Gaylord and Kansas City, but nothing can be done about that.

The updated script is available on my scripts page.

UPDATE: Medford is now compliant, and this is Portland's disclaimer.  I'm leaving 'pqr' in the script.

Kansas City's Winter Weather Page is now updated, but Gaylord's still isn't.

Interesting, it did  seem to work there for a while. Even the Gaylord NWS page isn't showing the forecast. The date is from the 12-13th.

The Marquette, MI office forecast extends into my area ("tip of the mitt"), so I checked that this morning.

The graphics on the images without "_BOX" are now out of date. The projections have come down since those were originally issued.   :sad:

Indeed!  The script now displays those with "_BOX".
