Overnight: partly cloudy, low in the lower 60s. Wednesday: partly cloudy, high in the lower 80s, wind north 5-10 m.p.h. Wednesday night: increasing cloudiness, low in the lower 60s. Thursday: chance for scattered showers beginning in the morning and continuing until evening, high in the upper 70s, wind east 6-12 m.p.h.
A high pressure system over the Great Lakes will give us another pleasant day on Wednesday. A low pressure system over western Kansas will move slowly eastward during the next three days. Although the low will pass south of Ohio, it will come close enough to our area to bring a chance for scattered showers on Thursday. The showers could begin on Thursday morning and continue until the evening. The probability of rain will be greater for southern Ohio. The rain will end on Thursday night as the low moves east of our area. High pressure will extend back over Ohio on Friday and we will see more sunshine. **Central Pacific Tropical Storm Guillermo** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Storm Guillermo was located at latitude 20.1N and longitude 149.7W which put it about 350 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii. Guillermo was moving toward the west-northwest at 9 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 70 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 998 mb. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Hawaii County and Maui County including the islands of Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe. **Western North Pacific Typhoon Soudelor** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Typhoon Soudelor was located at latitude 19.6N and longitude 134.3E which put it about 660 miles southeast of Okinawa and about 950 miles east-southeast of Taipei, Taiwan. Soudelor was moving toward the west at 13 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 130 m.p.h. which made Soudelor the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. The minimum surface pressure was 937 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
