A large surface high pressure system centered over Quebec will continue to produce cool easterly winds over Ohio on Sunday. The flow of moist air in the upper levels will shift east of our area on Sunday and there should fewer clouds. Less cloudiness will allow the temperature to rise to closer to normal levels in the afternoon. ***HURRICANE JOAQUIN*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Hurricane Joaquin was located at latitude 28.0N and longitude 68.9W which put it about 385 miles southwest of Bermuda and about 660 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.
