Thank you for the opportunity to serve you this past year. 2013 saw a new design and a complete overhaul of how we deliver and present our products. As always, if you have any suggestions or requests, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Overnight: mostly clear, low in the mid 50s. Saturday: partly cloudy and breezy, warmer, high in the lower 80s, wind south 10-20 m.p.h.. Saturday night: increasing cloudiness, low in the mid 60s. Sunday: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 70s, wind becoming west 10-20 m.p.h.
A high pressure system centered over Maine will continue to move eastward. This will allow a low pressure system over Ontario to pull a cold front into the Midwest. The pressure difference between the high and the low will create stronger southerly winds on Saturday. Those winds will bring in warmer air and push the temperature into the 80s in the afternoon. The humidity should also start to increase later in the day. The cold front will generate enough rising motion when it crosses Ohio on Sunday to give us a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Polo** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Storm Polo was located at latitude 20.1N and longitude 108.2W which put it about 165 miles west of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico and about 220 miles south-southeast of the southern tip of Baja California. Polo was moving toward the northwest at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 60 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 994 mb. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for a portion of the coast of southern Baja California from Santa Fe to La Paz.
