Overnight: clear, low in the mid 60s. Thursday: sunny, warm and humid, high in the upper 80s, wind variable 4-7 m.p.h. Thursday night: clear, low in the mid 60s. Friday: sunny, warm and humid, high in the upper 80s, wind variable 5-8 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system over the eastern U.S. will extend over Ohio on Thursday. Sinking motion above the high could result in fewer clouds. More sunshine could allow the temperature to warm into the upper 80s in the afternoon. The pressure gradient in the high is not very strong which will result in light and variable winds at the end of the week. **Tropical Storm Jose** At 8:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Storm Jose was located at latitude 39.6N and longitude 68.1W which put it about 150 miles south-southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts.
