Overnight: increasing cloudiness, low in the upper 30s. Monday: mostly cloudy, chance of scattered showers, high near 60, wind southwest 10-17 m.p.h. Monday night: mostly cloudy, low in the mid 40s. Tuesday: partly sunny, high in the mid 50s, wind northwest 8-16 m.p.h.
A low pressure system north of the Great Lakes is pulling a cold front toward Ohio. The combination of the low pressure system and a high over the MidAtlantic States will generate southwesterly winds for the first part of Monday. More wind and increasing cloudiness should keep the temperature a few degrees warmer during the overnight hours. Although the air is fairly dry, the cold front could generate enough rising motion to create a chance for scattered showers on Monday afternoon and evening. Northwesterly winds will bring in more cool air behind the cold front and we could see a seasonably cool week. **Hurricane Gonzalo** Gonzalo has made a transition to an extratropical cyclone over the colder water of the North Atlantic Ocean and the National Hurricane Center has written its last advisory on it. At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday the center of Hurricane Gonzalo was located at latitude 51.6N and longitude 41.8W which put it about 560 miles northeast of St. Johns, Newfoundland. Gonzalo was moving toward the northeast at 52 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 80 m.p.h. and the minimum pressure was 972 mb. **Central Pacific Tropical Storm Ana** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday the center of Tropical Storm Ana was located at latitude 20.8N and longitude 161.3W which put it about 220 miles west of Honolulu and about 150 miles southwest of Lihue, Hawaii. Ana was moving toward the west at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 70 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 994 mb. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for Kauai County including the islands of Kauai and Niihau. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument from Nihoa to French Frigate Shoals. A Hurricane Watch has been issued for the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument from Nihoa to Maro Reef.
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
