Overnight: clear, low near 70. Sunday: hot and humid, chance of isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high near 90, wind south 5-10 m.p.h. Sunday night: partly cloudy, low near 70. Monday: partly cloudy, high in the mid 80s, wind north 5-10 m.p.h.
Hot and humid air will be over Ohio again on Sunday. As the temperature at the surface warms, the atmosphere could become unstable. Boundaries left behind by previous storms could provide local zones of convergence and rising motion. Isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop. The southern edge of a high pressure system over Canada could extend across the Great Lakes on Monday. If that happens, light northerly winds could keep the temperature a few degrees cooler. ***Hurricane Gaston*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Hurricane Gaston was located at latitude 29.6N and longitude 54.2W which put it about 655 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. Gaston was moving toward the northwest at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 85 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 980 mb. ***Central North Pacific Tropical Storm Madeline*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Tropical Storm Madeline was located at latitude 15.7N and longitude 140.1W which put it about 1025 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii.
