An area of rain over West Central Ohio will move east during the overnight hours. Although the rain is becoming lighter as the area moves east, it could bring showers to Central Ohio. A large surface high pressure system centered north of Minnesota will move southeast on Wednesday and push a cold front toward Ohio. Southerly winds ahead of the cold front will bring more humid air back to the state. When the cold front lifts the humid air it could generate scattered showers and thunderstorms. After the cold front passes, the rain will end and northerly winds will bring cooler, drier air for the end of the week. The weather on Thursday and Friday could be very pleasant with slightly below normal temperatures and lower humidity. ***TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINE*** At 5:00 a.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Tropical Depression Nine was located at latitude 24.5N and longitude 88.1W which put it about 405 miles south-southwest of Apalachicola, Florida.
