Tuesday: Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 8:00 p.m. EDT, chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 70s, wind southwest 7-16 m.p.h. Tuesday night: mostly cloudy, low in the lower 60s. Wednesday: partly cloudy, high near 80, wind northwest 5-12 m.p.h.
***SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH*** The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch that will be in effect until 8:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday. The large scale pattern has an upper level ridge over the western U.S. and an upper level trough over the eastern U.S. Clear skies and sinking air in the upper level ridge are producing hot temperatures in the west, while the upper level trough is bringing cool rainy conditions to the Great Lakes and Ohio River Valley. Cool air and saturated ground could create the conditions necessary for fog in some locations during the overnight hours. A mid-level disturbance and a surface low over Wisconsin will move southeastward and bring a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon. Areas that have more sunshine during the day could become more unstable and see stronger storms. The showers and storms should move east of our area on Tuesday night as the low moves east of Ohio. An area of high pressure northwest of the Great Lakes will move southeastward behind the exiting low pressure system. Sinking motion associated with the high pressure system could produce more sunshine on Wednesday.
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
