Overnight: cloudy, low in the upper 60s. Tuesday: partly cloudy and less humid, high in the upper 80s, wind north 6-12 m.p.h. Tuesday night: partly cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Wednesday: partly cloudy, slight chance of an isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm, high in the upper 80s, wind variable 4-7 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered over Iowa will move slowly eastward during the next several days. Clockwise flow around the high will produce northerly winds which will bring slightly less humid air to Ohio on Tuesday. The center of the high will pass over the state on Wednesday and that cause the winds to be light. If the surface temperature warms enough on Wednesday afternoon, then the lower atmosphere could become unstable. If there is enough instability, isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop. An upper level low near the coast of Louisiana will move slowly northward. The upper low will reach the Ohio River Valley later this week and it will contribute to a greater chance of showers and thunderstorms on Thursday. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Frank** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Hurricane Frank was located at latitude 21.2N and longitude 116.6W which put it about 445 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Frank w;as moving toward the west-northwest at 9 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 75 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 989 mb. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Georgette** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Storm Georgette was located at latitude 18.4N and longitude 128.6W which put it about 1245 miles west of the southern tip ;of Baja California. Georgette was moving toward the northwest at 3 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 70 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 990 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
