Overnight: cloudy, low in the lower 70s. Thursday: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind southwest 10-17 m.p.h. Thursday night: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, low near 70 Friday: decreasing cloudiness, breezy and less humid, high in the lower 80s, wind west 10-20 m.p.h.
A low pressure system over southern Minnesota will move northeastward across the western Great Lakes on Thursday. The low pressure system will pull a cold front toward Ohio. Showers and thunderstorms developed in unstable air ahead of the cold front. Some of the showers and storms, or the outflow boundaries created by those storms, could reach Central Ohio by Thursday morning. Convergence along the outflow boundaries could also initiate the development of new thunderstorms on Thursday afternoon. Downdrafts in some storms could bring stronger winds to the surface and some storms could approach severe criteria. The cold front will move across Ohio during Thursday night and Friday morning. When the cold front lifts the air, it could generate a line of showers and thunderstorms. Brisk westerly winds will transport less humid air over the region on Friday after the cold front passes. ***Post Tropical Storm Gert*** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Post Tropical Storm Gert was located at latitude 44.8N and longitude 46.0W which put it about 365 miles east-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland. Gert was moving toward the east-northeast at 39 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 65 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 985 mb. ***Tropical Storm Harvey*** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Storm Harvey*** was located at latitude 13.0N and longitude 55.8W which put it about 250 miles east of Barbados. Harvey was moving toward the west at 18 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1004 mb. Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued for Martinique, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and St. Lucia. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Dominica.
