Overnight: clear, low in the upper 50s. Tuesday: sunny and a little warmer, high in the lower 80s, wind south 4-8 m.p.h. Tuesday night: clear, low near 60. Wednesday: more humid and cloudier, slight chance of an isolated afternoon shower of thunderstorm, high in the mid 80s, wind south 6-12 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered over West Virginia will move slowly east during the next several days. Clockwise flow around the high will produce southerly winds which will transport warmer air over the Ohio River Valley. By Wednesday the southerly winds will also start to bring more humid air back to our area. Warmer temperatures and more moisture will create the potential for the atmosphere to become unstable on Wednesday afternoon. If the atmosphere becomes unstable enough, isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop. ***Tropical Depression Fiona*** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Depression Fiona was located at latitude 26.1N and longitude 64.5W which put it about 430 miles south of Bermuda. Fiona was moving toward the west-northwest at 12 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1014 mb. ***Tropical Storm Gaston*** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Storm Gaston was located at latitude 14.2N and longitude 35.8W which put it about 765 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands. Gaston was moving toward the west-northwest at 18 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 65 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1002 mb.
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
