Title: 3 Hour Lightning Probability
Post by: LFWX on April 07, 2015, 04:34:35 PM
Does anyone know if this product has moved?

The images on the experimental page stopped updating on March 11, 2015.

A quick Google search only returns various sites still using the images dated 3/11/2015.

Experimental page (select "Prob CG ltg"): http://www.nws.noaa.gov/mdl/radar/03h.htm

See http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=23059.msg222012#msg222012 (http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=23059.msg222012#msg222012)

The email that I received from NWS is at the bottom. They said that they might discontinue it, maybe they finally did.

Update: I just commented out the HTML from my website that calls the 3 hour NE forecast. Even though it has kind of "retro-look" graphics, I liked the regional view. Oh well. It was good while it lasted...

Maybe it was just a coincidence, but the last time it was stuck was also on the 11th of the month...

The time stamp was stuck on 6/11/2014 for weeks

It was also on a month that is a "quarter". Hmmm.....

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/tdl/radar/NE_probltg.gif (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/tdl/radar/NE_probltg.gif) is back again.

I received an email from NWS telling me that it was back up. I mentioned that I liked the regional view of this older map and was told that they are working on a zoomable version of the LAMPS page.
