Overnight: partly cloudy, low in the mid 30s. Thursday: partly cloudy, high in the lower 60s, wind south 7-14 m.p.h. Thursday night: cloudy, low in the mid 40s. Friday: cloudy, chance for afternoon showers, high in the lower 60s, wind southwest 8-16 m.p.h.
A large area of high pressure will keep mild air over Ohio on Thursday and Friday. Southerly winds will begin to transport moister air over Ohio on Thursday afternoon. The moister air will be accompanied by more clouds. A cold front over the Central U.S. will move eastward but the high pressure system will keep it from moving very fast. The cold front could be close enough to our area to give us a chance for showers on Friday afternoon. The chance for rain will increase on Friday night as the cold front gets closer. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Sandra** At 4:00 p.m. EST on Thursday the center of Hurricane Sandra was located at latitude 16.8N and longitude 110.1W which put it about 420 miles south of the southern tip of Baja California. Sandra was moving toward the north at 12 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 120 m.p.h. which makes Sandra a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Scale and a major hurricane The minimum surface pressure was 956 mb. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the coast of Baja California from Todos Santos to Los Barriles. Sandra is the ninth major hurricane to form over the Eastern North Pacific during 2015, which is a new record for that basin.
We are in the process of building our Tropical Weather Pages. These pages will feature valuable information issued by the National Hurricane Center, Satellite imagery, and more!Go to Tropical Weather
These pages feature links to textual products issued by the Storm Prediction Center and severe weather index charts. We will add model data geared specifically to forecasting for severe weather soon!Go to Severe Weather
