High pressure positioned over Indiana will move east and become centered over Ohio by late morning Wednesday. Overall sinking motion of air associated with high pressure will act to limit rising of moisture, which will keep skies mostly sunny. This high pressure will move off to the east and dissipate as another region of high pressure moves into Ohio from the northwest. This high will bring more cold air keeping temperatures from rising too far past 70 for the next couple days. ***Hurricane Edouard*** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Hurricane Edouard was located at latitude 37.8N and longitude 51.2W which put it about 855 miles east-northeast of Bermuda and about 1220 miles west of Fayal Island in the Azores.
