Overnight: decreasing cloudiness, areas of frost possible, low in the mid to upper 30s. Thursday: sunny, high near 60, wind north 3-9 m.p.h. Thursday night: mostly clear, low in the upper 30s. Friday: sunny and warmer, high in the mid 60s, wind southwest 4-10 m.p.h.
An upper level low near New York City will continue to move northeastward on Thursday. As the upper low gets farther away from us, cloudiness should start to decrease. In locations where the clouds move out tonight, the temperature could decrease enough to make frost a possibility. A high pressure system centered over Lake Michigan will move slowly across the us during the next 48 hours. The high should bring more sunshine on Thursday. By Friday the center of the high should be east of us and southerly winds could push the temperature into the mid 60s by Friday afternoon. The mild temperatures are likely to continue into the weekend. **TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINE** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Tropical Depression Nine (TD9) was located at latitude 18.9N and longitude 90.9W which put it about 75 miles south-southwest of Campeche, Mexico and about 750 miles west-southwest of Key West, Florida. TD9 was moving toward the east-southeast at 6 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1004 mb. The Tropical Storm Watch issued for the portion of the coast from Celestun to Frontera, Mexico has been discontinued. The center of TD9 moved inland near Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico and the National Hurricane Center has ceased writing advisories on it. **Central Pacific Tropical Storm Ana** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Tropical Storm Ana was located at latitude 24.8N and longitude 167.9W which put it about 120 miles west-northwest of French Frigate Shoals and about 165 miles east of Maro Reef, Hawaii. Ana was moving toward the north-northwest at 12 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1005 mb. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument from French Frigate Shoals to Lisianski.
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
