Overnight: mostly cloudy, low in the mid 40s. Tuesday: decreasing cloudiness, high in the mid 50s, wind northwest 10-18 m.p.h. Tuesday night: partly cloudy, low in the upper 30s. Wednesday: partly cloudy, high in the mid 50s, wind north 6-16 m.p.h.
A surface low pressure system moving across the northeastern U.S. and a surface high pressure system centered over Nebraska will combine to keep northerly winds blowing across our area on Tuesday. An upper level trough moving in tandem with the surface low will keep cooler air aloft and help to maintain some cloud cover on Tuesday. The high pressure system will also move eastward and it could be close enough help bring a little more sunshine by the end of the day on Tuesday. We should see even more sunshine on Wednesday as the center of the high moves closer to Ohio. Once the center of the high gets east of us by the end of the week, southerly winds will bring back some warmer air. **Low over Southern Gulf of Mexico** A Low pressure system has formed along the western end of a stationary front over the Bay of Campeche. Some tropical development of this low pressure system is possible. At 2:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of the low was located at latitude 19.2N and longitude 95.0W which put it about 420 miles northwest of Campeche, Mexico and about 930 miles west-southwest of Key West, Florida. The low was moving toward the east-southeast at 3 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1006 mb. **Central Pacific Tropical Storm Ana** At 8:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Storm Ana was located at latitude 20.8N and longitude 165.4W which put it about 215 miles south-southeast of French Frigate Shoals and about 400 miles west of Lihue, Hawaii. Ana was moving toward the west at 9 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 50 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 999 mb. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument from Nihoa to French Frigate Shoals. The Hurricane Watch issued for the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument from Nihoa to Maro Reef has been discontinued.
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
