***FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Freezing Rain Advisory that will be in effect from 4:00 a.m. EST until 11:00 a.m. EST on Thursday. A low pressure system over southern Iowa will move eastward toward the Great Lakes. The leading edge of the low pressure system will bring some high clouds over Ohio during the overnight hours. Clouds and southeasterly winds will cause the temperature to increase slowly by morning. Scattered rain showers could move into our area on Thursday morning. If the rain starts while the surface temperature is below freezing, we could see a period of freezing rain. Eventually, southerly winds ahead of the low pressure system will bring in warmer and the temperature will rise into the upper 30s which will change any freezing rain to rain showers. As the low passes north of our area, it will pull a cold front across the state on Thursday afternoon. As northerly winds pump colder air back over Ohio on Thursday night, the rain showers will transition to snow showers. A cold high pressure system will move southeastward from Canada on Friday and transport cold air over the Great Lakes.
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
