Overnight: partly cloudy, low in the lower 50s. Wednesday: partly cloudy, high in the lower 70s, wind north 5-10 m.p.h. Wednesday night: mostly clear, low in the lower 50s. Thursday: increasing cloudiness, high in the mid 70s, wind south 5-10 m.p.h.
A high pressure system centered over Missouri will move eastward slowly on Wednesday. The winds will be light and variable as the center of the high pressure system moves across Ohio. Clouds could develop as the center of the high moves east of our area. The combination of the high and a cold front approaching from the west will generate southerly winds on Thursday. The approaching cold front will cause increasing cloudiness on Thursday. The front could be close enough to give us a chance for rain by Thursday night. **Hurricane Joaquin** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Hurricane Joaquin was located at latitude 40.0N and longitude 53.1W which put it about 465 miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland. Joaquin was moving toward the east-northeast at 29 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 80 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 974 mb. **Central Pacific Hurricane Oho** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Hurricane Oho was located at latitude 18.1N and longitude 148.9W which put it about 420 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Oho was moving toward the northeast at 22 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 85 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 976 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
