Live aircraft pages:

Due to various errors, many overlays had to be removed from the Cesium display. I hope to add some of them back in the future. 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 minute. (summary)

15 product files are currently monitored in this basin.

Last check for data: Thursday, Jul. 20, 2017 18:46 Z

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