Overnight: cloudy, low in the mid 40s. Friday: cloudy and mild, high in the lower 60s, wind south 8-15 m.p.h. Friday night: scattered showers, low in the mid 40s. Saturday: showers and cooler, high in the lower 50s, wind north 6-12 m.p.h.
A large cold high pressure system over the western U.S. is pushing eastward against a large mild high pressure system over the eastern U.S. A slow moving cold front over the Central U.S, represents the boundary between the two high pressure systems. The cold front will gradually move eastward on Friday. A flow of air from the south will continue to transport moisture and clouds over Ohio. The cold front could be close enough to give us a chance of scattered showers by late Friday afternoon or evening. The chances for rain will increase on Friday night and Saturday as the front moves slowly across the state. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Sandra** At 4:00 p.m. EST on Friday the center of Hurricane Sandra was located at latitude 20.4N and longitude 108.4W which put it about 150 miles west-southwest of Las Islas Marias and about 230 miles southwest of Mazatlan, Mexico. Sandra was moving toward the north-northeast at 10 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 80 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 978 mb. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for portion of the coast from Altata to San Blas and for Las Islas Marias.
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
