Overnight: cloudy, low in the lower 70s. Friday: slight chance of an isolated morning shower or thunderstorm, high in the mid 80s, wind north 6-12 m.p.h. Friday night: partly cloudy, low in the upper 60s. Saturday: partly cloudy, high in the upper 80s, wind south 4-8 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure over the North Central U.S. will move southeast and push a weak cold front across our area on Friday morning. The front is weak and it will be moving slowly. So, the front will not lift the air very vigorously. In addition the air is more stable in the morning. Thus, there is only a slight chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms when the front moves over Central Ohio. Northerly winds will blow after the front passes, but they will only bring slightly cooler, less humid air. The front will stall and dissipate near the Ohio River. The center of the high will move east of the Great Lakes on Saturday and southerly winds will bring hot humid air back to our area. ***Tropical Storm Gaston*** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Storm Gaston was located at latitude 25.2N and longitude 48.3W which put it about 1110 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. Gaston was moving toward the northwest at 17 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 65 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 997 mb.
We are in the process of building our Tropical Weather Pages. These pages will feature valuable information issued by the National Hurricane Center, Satellite imagery, and more!Go to Tropical Weather
These pages feature links to textual products issued by the Storm Prediction Center and severe weather index charts. We will add model data geared specifically to forecasting for severe weather soon!Go to Severe Weather
