Overnight: mostly cloudy, low in the lower 40s. Wednesday: decreasing cloudiness, high in the mid 50s, wind north 6-15 m.p.h. Wednesday night: mostly clear, areas of frost possible, low in the mid 30s. Thursday: sunny and milder, high in the lower 60s, wind north 3-10 m.p.h.
An upper level low east of Ohio is close enough to continue to circulate clouds over our area. The clouds will keep the temperature warmer during the overnight hours. The upper low will move northeastward on Wednesday. A portion of a surface high pressure system centered north of the Great Lakes will move south over Ohio and start to clear our skies. Mostly clear skies on Wednesday night will allow the temperature to drop into the 30s and areas of frost will be possible. More sunshine and lighter winds will allow the temperature to rise into the 60s on Thursday afternoon. **TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINE** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Depression Nine (TD9) was located at latitude 19.4N and longitude 92.9W which put it about 160 miles west of Campeche, Mexico and about 850 miles west-southwest of Key West, Florida.
