SkyTrak2000's New Weather Maps!

Beginning today on NEWS 2 at 4:00, NEWS 2 premiered new weather maps! Instead of the old yellow maps, they now show the mountains and valleys better than the old maps. It's similar to the old NEWS 2 maps, which began to be used in 1997, except the new ones aren't three-dimensional. I will have pictures of the new maps this weekend, on "NEWS 2 New York".
