On Tuesday, December 1, at approximately 1330 UTC (8:30 a.m. EST), a planned system failover test for up to 8 hours will result in delayed, inconsistent, stale or missing data on the GOES and SPSD web sites and an outage of the OSPO web site. Please monitor www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/SATS/messages.html for additional information. The failover test may be delayed or suspended if there is a critical weather event.
The purpose of this page is to provide additional information about our Flash Loops and provide links for more information.
- MS Internet Explorer version 8: It was recently brought to our attention that there may be problems when viewing loops using Internet Explorer 8. If you have difficulty with the refresh button on the flash loop, reloading the page using the browser refresh may work. This problem has not been found in Internet Explorer 7, Firefox and Safari. In many cases, the java loops are still available and may be used instead of the flash loops. We are working on resolving this issue.
- Zoom Button: Zoom-in on an image by clicking the zoom button and then clicking on the image. Clicking the Un-zoom button will return to the intital state. Left click, hold and drag allows you to move around within the zoomed image.
- Overlays: Overlays are set for more than one location. Many, such as "Fronts", will only work on the US Conus Areas.
- Missing Florida Keys: When broad over view areas are mapped, the Florida Keys and other details may not appear on the image. These should appear on images of 3Km resolution or less.
