Overnight: cloudy, low in the lower 50s. Thursday: cloudy, high in the upper 60s, wind south 6-12 m.p.h. Thursday night: cloudy, low in the mid 50s. Friday: partly sunny, breezy with a chance of nighttime showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 70s, wind south 10-20 m.p.h.
A cold front over the western Great Lakes will move southeastward on Thursday, but the front will stall over northern Ohio. At the same time a low pressure system will move from Colorado to the Central U.S. Counterclockwise flow around the low will produce southerly winds which will transport record warmth over Ohio during the end of the week. The low will strengthen and move toward the Great Lakes on Friday. Stronger southerly winds will push the front back toward the north and the temperature could rise into the 70s on Friday afternoon. The low will move across the Great Lakes during Friday night and it will pull a cold front across Ohio. When the cold front lifts the air, it is likely to generate a line of showers and thunderstorms. Downdrafts in thunderstorms could transport stronger winds to the surface and some storms could approach severe criteria.
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
