Overnight: isolated showers and thunderstorms, low near 70. Thursday: warm and humid, chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the upper 80s, wind variable 5-10 m.p.h. Thursday night: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, low near 70. Friday: warm and humid, chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind variable 4-9 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered over Kentucky will keep warm and humid air over Ohio for the end of the week. Our winds will be light and variable, but local boundaries left behind by previous storms could serve as sources of convergence and rising motion. As the air warms during the day, the atmosphere will become more unstable and isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop. A small disturbance in the middle levels of the atmosphere will move across our area on Thursday night. Cooler air in the disturbance will keep the atmosphere more unstable than it usually is at night, and we could have a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Daytime heating on Friday could bring another chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms. **Tropical Storm Fred** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Tropical Storm Fred was located at latitude 20.6N and longitude 32.7W which put it about 655 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Fred was moving toward the west-northwest at 10 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1006 mb. **Central North Pacific Hurricane Ignacio** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Hurricane Ignacio was located at latitude 27.4N and longitude 159.5W which put it about 435 miles north-northwest of Honolulu, Hawaii. Ignacio was moving toward the northwest at 13 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 75 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 982 mb. **Central North Pacific Hurricane Jimena** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Hurricane Jimena was located at latitude 18.4N and longitude 143.4W which put it about 770 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii. Jimena was moving toward the northwest at 5 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 105 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 965 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
