Overnight: slight chance of showers and thunderstorms early, then cloudy, low near 70. Saturday: partly sunny in the morning, chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, some storms could produce locally heavy rain, high in the lower 80s, wind south 5-10 m.p.h. Saturday night: cloudy, low near 70. Sunday: partly cloudy, high in the mid 80s, wind west 6-12 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered near Lake Superior will move slowly eastward during the weekend. The southern edge of the high will push a cold front closer to Central Ohio, but we will still be on the warm, humid side of the front on Saturday. As the temperature near the surface warms the atmosphere will become unstable and scattered showers and thunderstorms could form. The winds in the middle levels are not very strong and the storms will move slowly. As a result, slow moving thunderstorms could drop locally heavy rainfall. ***Atlantic Ocean*** The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two tropical disturbances for possible development. At 2:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Invest 97L was located at latitude 14.5N and longitude 51.30W which put it about 545 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands. Invest 97L was moving toward the west at 30 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1010 mb. At 2:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Invest 96L was located at latitude 11.8N and longitude 27.7W which put it about 350 miles south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Invest 96L was moving toward the west at 13 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 30 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1010 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
