Overnight: cloudy, low near 70. Thursday: chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 80s, wind south 5-10 m.p.h. Thursday night: cloudy, low in the upper 60s. Friday: cloudy, chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 80s, wind becoming north 5-10 m.p.h.
A nearly stationary frontal boundary is lingering near Central Ohio. An upper level low near Memphis, Tennessee will move northeast toward the Ohio River Valley on Thursday. There is slightly cooler air around the center of the upper low, which will make the atmosphere a little more unstable on Thursday afternoon. Low level convergence into the stationary front and more instability will increase the potential for development of showers and thunderstorms on Thursday afternoon. More clouds will keep the temperature a few degrees cooler on Thursday. A surface high pressure system over south central Canada will move southeast toward the Great Lakes during the next several days. The high will push a cold front toward Ohio. When the cold front moves across the state on Friday afternoon, it will lift the air and give us another chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. The front could become stationary near Ohio, which would keep a chance of rain in the forecast for the weekend. ***Atlantic Ocean*** The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two tropical disturbances for possible development. At 2:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Invest 97L was located at latitude 13.0N and longitude 34.5W which put it about 1700 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands. Invest 97L was moving toward the west at 17 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 25 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1011 mb. At 2:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Invest 96L was located at latitude 10.8N and longitude 20.7W which put it about 350 miles south-southeast of the Cape Verde Islands. Invest 96L was moving toward the west-northwest at 11 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1010 mb. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Depression Frank** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Depression Frank was located at latitude 23.7N and longitude 124.4W which put it about 920 miles west of the southern tip of Baja California. Frank was moving toward the west-northwest at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 35 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1006 mb.
