***WIND CHILL ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory that will be in effect from 8:00 p.m. EST on Thursday until 11:00 a.m. EST on Friday. A low pressure system over Missouri will move east-southeastward and weaken. As the low passes south of Ohio it will gives us a chance for scattered snow showers on Thursday. A large cold high pressure system is moving southward from Canada. Clockwise flow around the eastern end of the high will combine with the counterclockwise rotation of the low to produce northeasterly winds. Those winds will bring more cold air across the Great Lakes and keep our temperature well below normal on Thursday. The center of the high will move closer to Ohio on Friday and bring the core of the cold air closer to our area. It looks like our coldest temperature could occur on Friday night as the center of the high moves across the state.
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
