Overnight: mostly clear with passing clouds, low in the mid 40s. Saturday: partly cloudy, high near 70, wind southwest 5-16 m.p.h. Saturday night: mostly clear, low in the mid 40s. Sunday: sunny, high in the mid 60s, wind northwest 5-10 m.p.h.
Much of the U.S. is covered by high pressure which is producing dry conditions and abundant sunshine over much of the country. A weak trough of low pressure near the Mississippi River is producing some cloudiness in the middle of the country. A high pressure system centered over the southern U.S. will bring us southerly winds and warm temperatures on Saturday. A second high pressure system over the western U.S. will push a trough of low pressure across Ohio later in the day. Northwesterly winds behind the trough will make it a few degrees cooler on Sunday. Southerly winds on Monday will push the temperature back into the 70s. **Tropical Depression Nine** At 8:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Depression Nine (TD9) was located at latitude 19.1N and longitude 86.2W which put it about 200 miles south-southeast of Cancun, Mexico and about 500 miles south-southwest of Key West, Florida. TD9 was moving toward the east-northeast at 9 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 25 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1008 mb. **Central Pacific Hurricane Ana** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Hurricane Ana was located at latitude 31.0N and longitude 167.8W which put it about 500 miles north of French Frigate Shoals and about 905 miles northwest of Honolulu, Hawaii. Ana was moving toward the northeast at 23 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 75 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 988 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
