February 18, 2004

Two links added to the Numerical Models page for Model Output Statistics (MOS) guidance generated for our Cooperative Observer Sites across the western Carolinas and northeast Georgia. The MOS is run off the GFS model and supplies medium and short range temperature guidance to over 50 sites in the Greenville-Spartanburg County Warning Area.

August 20, 2003

The National Weather Service Eastern Region Web sites were moved to a new server network.

The link is located on the left-hand menu under the "Current Hazards" section.

September 17, 2002

The Hydrology Section was organized into a three page suite. The three new pages are AHPS, Current Conditions, and Past Conditions, the pages contain the same information found on the old hydro page with some new links. Hopefully, information will be located quicker with the reorganization.

Daily summaries for Anderson and Hickory were added to the climate page.

A form has also been added to upper left hand side of each page which will let users get a National Weather Service forecast for any part of the country by searching by city and state.

April 26, 2002

Our new, assistant webmaster made some very welcome changes to the climate page. Now the data which used to be on three separate pages is consolidated onto one page, most of which is accessible through drop-down menus. All the old climate data are there, but hopefully it will be easier to find. Also, "climate data" was replaced with "past weather" in many parts of the site.

April 14, 2002

The forecast page now has a new Experimental Graphical Forecast. This supplements the Graphical Forecast Table which has been on the forecast page for a couple months now. In order to link to the data, the page layout was changed, though the names of all the sub-links are still the same.

March 30, 2002

Many minor changes to the look and feel of the page. Added a link back to the main page from all the interior pages on the site -- just click on "Greenville-Spartanburg, SC Home" at the top of each page. All sub-pages now have the new "look and feel".

February 17, 2002:

Posted the first version of the "Corporate Web Image" for people's reaction. This page format will be standardized across all National Weather Service pages, from field offices up to the national level. This homogeneous look and feel will make surfing NWS pages, and finding information, much easier.

Also changed the Graphical Forecast Table to use an image map rather than a table. Please let me know if you would also like the old table back!

Did a similar thing for the fire weather page, which now has our Fire Weather Forecast, and a few new links.

December 21, 1999: Was able to add back several of the *.com links. Radar links are not among them. Added two new links to the satellite page under "other images".

December 5, 1999: Added several regional airports to the regional airport observation page. I also added a link to this page to the aviation page.

December 5, 1999: Not a lot of new content the past few months. We do periodically post brief reviews of significant weather events on the main page. We also update climate information every month. And coming soon will be a revamped Fire Weather Page as we will begin to issue an official Fire Weather Forecast within the next two months (the official date will soon be posted). Oh yes, I removed links to *.coms from this page as well. Thanks to one of our constant readers for pointing out this omission.

November 11, 1999: Due to a recent policy change, all links to *.com address have been removed from the page. Sorry for the inconvenience.

September 29-30, 1999: Uploaded the new page design. This is a purely table-based format without frames. Let me know of any problems! Thanks go to Mike Murphy for showing me how the page layout would be easier with style sheets.

September 10, 1999: Added a rather belated special link to PNS for this past hot and dry August.

August 29, 1999: Added link to new page layout ( Removed this link as this is now the main page). It could be a while until I make it official -- your comments appreciated. Added a "seasonal weather" section to the main page. Its purpose, I hope, is self-evident.

August 29, 1999: Added a little java roll-over script to main page to show hail-stones from Aug 20th storms. Also put up a reflectivity image of the parent supercell.

August 13, 1999: Added a section to drought page to allow access to CAE's drought online chat on the 23rd.

July 14 1999: Added data for the number of 90 and 100 degree days for GSP to climate data page. Also changed the layout for AVL, GSP and CLT main climate pages. Nothing drastic in appearance, but the order is now a little more logical.

June 20, 1999: Established new directory structure for home page. Now all of the major sections of the page have their own directory. This will make my life a lot easier. Please let me know if any links have fallen through the cracks as a result.

June 4, 1999: Fixed all the Intellicast links -- please let me know if they are not (These links have been removed). Also added "local data" section to non-frames page. Over the past month or so I've made a few minor changes such as adding a Model Output Statistics (MOS) section and more BUFKIT data to the "local data" page.

May 13, 1999: Added a "QuickCast" link to the zone forecasts on both the framed and non framed main-pages. The javascript code is basically the same as that from the National Weather Service office at Mt. Holly, NJ, so thanks should go to them for this bit of code.

April 17, 1999: Added a few high resolution images to the satellite page. I should also mention that I have removed the site counter as the company which hosted it seems to have gone out of business. I will add a new counter as soon as I find one I like.

March 27, 1999: Added new section to "NWS Products" called Local Data. For now this page has BUFKIT data.

March 12, 1999: Added link for GSP's Non Precipitation Warnings on the Severe and Winter Weather Page.
