Weather Charts on the NET


The NWS Gateway provides access to the latest version of the weather facsimile chart they operationally distribute. The charts are not altered or enhanced and are in the original black-and-white form used by NWS offices. These facsimile products are in a digital G4-1D (T4) code as defined in WMO Manual 386 for Global transmission and are enveloped in TIFF. You will probably need an external viewer to display TIFF files.

A chart reference guide is provided for your information. Additional charts will be added as limited staffing resources permit.

Please see the Amaster_index.html for a definition of these charts
