Overnight: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, low in the upper 60s. Friday: warm and humid, chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the upper 80s, wind southwest 5-10 m.p.h. Friday night: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, low in the upper 60s. Saturday: warm and humid, chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the upper 80s, wind variable 4-8 m.p.h.
A small trough in the middle levels of the atmosphere will move across Ohio during the overnight hours. The trough contains slightly cooler air which will keep the atmosphere a little more unstable, and will create the potential for isolated showers and thunderstorms. Daytime heating and humid air will create the conditions necessary for isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms on Friday. As the air cools on Friday night, it will become more stable and most showers and thunderstorms should weaken. Warm humid air will give us another chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms again on Saturday. **Tropical Storm Fred** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Storm Fred was located at latitude 22.0N and longitude 36.5W which put it about 915 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands.
