Overnight: cloudy, low near 70. Friday: decreasing cloudiness, not as humid, high in the mid 80s, wind west 10-18 m.p.h. Friday night: increasing cloudiness, low in the mid 60s. Saturday: chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 80s, wind southwest 8-16 m.p.h.
A low pressure system near Lake Superior will move east and pull a cold front across Ohio on Friday. After the cold front passes, westerly winds will bring air that is a little less humid. A trough in the middle levels of the atmosphere will move across Ohio on Saturday. The air in the trough is cold and it will make the atmosphere more unstable. More instability will increase the chance for showers and thunderstorms. The atmosphere is likely to be most unstable on Saturday afternoon and that will be the time with the highest potential for thunderstorms. ***Tropical Storm Harvey*** At118:00 a.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Storm Harvey was located at latitude 13.1N and longitude 61.3W which put it about 15 miles south-southwest of St. Vincent. Harvey was moving toward the west at 21 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1005 mb. Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for Martinique, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and St. Lucia. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Dominica.
