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: partly cloudy, low in the lower 60s. Friday: increasing cloudiness and a little more humid, chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind southeast 3-10 m.p.h.

High pressure centered off the Northeast Coast and weak low pressure over Georgia will combine to produce southeasterly winds on Friday. Those winds will bring more humid air back into Ohio. Although an upper level trough centered near Hudson Bay has weakened, it still extends southward over our area. The cooler air aloft in the trough may allow for enough instability on Friday afternoon to create a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. The low over Georgia will move northward east of the Appalachians. Even though the low will pass well to our east, it may contribute to a chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. **TROPICAL STORM BERTHA*** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Storm Bertha was located at latitude 14.8N and longitude 61.2W which put it about 20 miles northwest of Martinique, about 405 miles southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico and about 1490 miles east-southeast of Miami, Florida. Bertha was moving toward the west-northwest at 24 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 50 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure 1007 mb. Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued for Dominica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the British Virgin Islands. Tropical Storm Watches have been issued for the coast of the Dominican Republic from Cabo Frances Viejo to Isla Saona, the Southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos.
