This data set contains maps of surface weather observations over several US sectors (Central Mississippi Valley, Central Plains, Great Lakes, Lower Mississippi Valley, Mid-Atlantic, Northern High Plains, Ohio Valley, Southeast, and Upper Mississippi Valley. The latest observation at the time the plot was generated was utilized, so the plots contain a mix of standard hourly and special observations. The maps were generated by NCAR/RAL.
