Overnight: chance for showers and thunderstorms, low in the mid 70s. Saturday: chance for showers and thunderstorms, high in the upper 80s, wind southwest 7-14 m.p.h. Saturday night: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, low in the lower 70s. Sunday: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind west 11-17 m.p.h.
Mesoscale Convective Systems and an approaching cold front will give us several chances for showers and thunderstorms during the weekend. A cluster of thunderstorms near Chicago will move southeast and it could reach Central Ohio by early Saturday morning. If thunderstorms persist, some storms could be strong when they reach the area. Another cluster of showers and thunderstorms west of the Great Lakes could move over Ohio later on Saturday. The second cluster could weaken before it reaches the state, but outflow boundaries associated with earlier storms could initiate the development of new thunderstorms. A cold front over the Northern Great Plains will reach Ohio on Sunday. The cold front could lift the air and generate another chance for showers and thunderstorms. **Central North Pacific Tropical Storm Fernanda** At 5:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Tropical Storm Fernanda was located at latitude 19.0N and longitude 145.4W which put it about 635 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii. Fernanda was moving toward the west-northwest at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1004 mb. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Greg** At 5:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Tropical Storm Greg was located at latitude 15.2N and longitude 123.1W which put it about 1010 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Greg was moving toward the west at 13 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 50 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1003 mb.
