Ephemerata Weather Radar will likely be affected by a planned outage by the US National Weather Service as they migrate some of their data services to a new server configuration. EWR uses data from these servers. Most of this conversion effort will occur in the evening of July 19, 2010 EDT local time. If the data conversion goes without incident, the outage should be short lived.

EWR users are therfore cautioned that radar maps later today and through the overnight may not be updated and therefore not be current. Ontario users of EWR may wish to refer to the Environment Canada sites listed in the sidebar on the alerts archive if weather is threatening and an official statement is needed.
