Overnight: intermittent high clouds, low in the upper 30s. Friday: partly cloudy and milder, high in the mid 60s, wind south 4-11 m.p.h. Friday night: mostly clear, low in the lower 40s. Saturday: partly cloudy and warmer, high near 70, wind southwest 7-17 m.p.h.
High pressure centered over West Virginia will provide a calm night. A trough of low pressure extending from Lake Superior to the Gulf Coast will send high clouds across Ohio on Friday. The trough was originally a cold front, but the air from the Pacific Ocean dried out and warmed up as it crossed the country. So, the air behind the trough will actually bring us warmer temperatures on Saturday and it could reach 70 degrees on Saturday afternoon. Another trough will bring slightly cooler, but still seasonably mild temperatures on Sunday. **Tropical Depression Nine** At 2:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Depression Nine (TD9) was located at latitude 19.0N and longitude 87.0W which put it about 150 miles south of Cancun, Mexico and about 550 miles south-southwest of Key West, Florida. TD9 was moving toward the east-northeast at 9 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 25 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1009 mb. **Central Pacific Tropical Storm Ana** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Storm Ana was located at latitude 29.7N and longitude 169.3W which put it about 440 miles north-northwest of French Frigate Shoals and about 915 miles northwest of Honolulu, Hawaii. Ana was moving toward the north-northeast at 13 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 65 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 996 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
