Overnight: cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Monday: partly cloudy, slight chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the upper 80s, wind southwest 5-10 m.p.h. Monday night: partly cloudy, low near 70. Tuesday: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the upper 80s, wind southwest 5-10 m.p.h.
After a relatively mild August warm and humid weather will return for the upcoming week. An upper level ridge will move slowly across the eastern U.S. this week. At the same time a surface high pressure system centered over Iowa will move eastward and merge with a much large high pressure system centered over the Atlantic Ocean. Southerly winds near the ground will circulate warm humid air over Ohio for much of the week. A weak surface trough between the two high pressure systems could provide a source of low level convergence and rising motion. The atmosphere could become unstable enough in some locations to allow for the formation of isolated showers and thunderstorms. When the upper level ridge moves over Ohio, the warmer air in it will make the atmosphere more stable. **Hurricane Fred** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Monday the center of Hurricane Fred was located at latitude 16.4N and longitude 23.7W which put it about 45 miles east-southeast of Ribeira Brava in the Cape Verde Islands. Fred was moving toward the northwest at 12 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 85 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 986 mb. A Hurricane Warning has been issued for the Cape Verde Islands. **Central North Pacific Hurricane Ignacio** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Monday the center of Hurricane Ignacio was located at latitude 20.9N and longitude 150.8W which put it about 460 miles east of Honolulu, Hawaii. Ignacio was moving toward the northwest at 10 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 105 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 966 mb. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Jimena** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Monday the center of Hurricane Jimena was located at latitude 15.6N and longitude 135.3W which put it about 1330 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii. Jimena was moving toward the west at 16 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 150 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 936 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
