***HEAT ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory that will be in effect until 8:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday. Slightly drier air moved over northeastern Ohio on Saturday, but humid air remained in place in Central Ohio. Continued hot temperatures high and high humidity will keep a potential for heat stress on Sunday. A cluster of thunderstorms called a Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) near Chicago could move southeast and weaken during the overnight hours. Outflow boundaries from those storms could lift the hot humid air and initiate the development isolated thunderstorms on Sunday. A low pressure system moving north of the Great Lakes will pull a cold front toward Ohio on Monday. The cold front will also lift the humid air and it could generate a line of showers and thunderstorms on Monday afternoon. ***Central Pacific Tropical Storm Darby*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Tropical Storm Darby was located at latitude 19.3N and longitude 155.8W which put it about 195 miles southeast of Honolulu, Hawaii. Darby was moving toward the west at 10 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1006 mb. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Oahu, Hawaii County and Maui County including Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe, Kauai County including Kauai and Niihau. ***Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Frank*** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Tropical Storm Frank was located at latitude 19.6N and longitude 111.1W which put it about 240 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Frank was moving toward the northwest at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 65 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 996 mb.
