Overnight: mostly clear, low in the mid 50s. Friday: sunny and warmer, high in the lower 80s, wind southeast 4-8 m.p.h. Friday night: partly cloudy, low near 60. Saturday: sunny in the morning, increasing cloudiness in the afternoon, slight chance of an isolated late day shower or thunderstorm, high in the mid 80s, wind south 7-14 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered over Lake Erie will move eastward on Friday. As the high moves east, the wind will begin to blow from the south and it will bring warmer air. A low pressure system over Nebraska will follow the high pressure system and it will also move east during the next few days. As the low approaches Ohio from the west on Saturday, it will contribute to rising motion and clouds are likely to increase on Saturday afternoon. The low could be close enough to give us a slight chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms on Saturday evening. It looks like the greatest chances for rain could be on Saturday night and Sunday morning. **TROPICAL STORM ERIKA** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Storm Erika was located at latitude 17.7N and longitude 69.4W which put it about 65 miles south-southeast of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and about 860 miles southeast of Miami, Florida.
