Overnight: mostly cloudy, low in the upper 30s. Thursday: partly cloudy, high in the lower 50s, wind variable 3-8 m.p.h. Thursday night: increasing cloudiness, low in the lower 40s.

An upper level trough passing over our area will keep low clouds over us during the overnight hours. A surface high pressure system centered near St. Louis will move eastward across Ohio on Thursday. The high will bring some sunshine and light winds. The high will move east of the state on Friday and we will have southwesterly winds to start the day. A low pressure system over North Dakota will move southeastward across the Great Lakes behind the high pressure system. The low will start to increase our clouds on Thursday night and it will bring cold rain showers on Friday. The low will also pull a cold front across Ohio. We could see a few wet snowflakes mixing in with the rain showers on Friday night after northwesterly winds start to bring colder air into our area. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Depression Twentyone-E** Another tropical depression has formed south of Mexico. Ar 11:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Depression 21-E (TD21E) was located at latitude 11.5N and longitude 100.9W which put it about 380 miles south of Acapulco, Mexico. TD21E was moving toward the west at 6 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 35 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1007 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
