Overnight: clear, low in the mid 20s. Wednesday: sunny and mild, high in the upper 50s, wind south 5-10 m.p.h. Wednesday night: partly cloudy, low in the lower 30s. Thursday: increasing cloudiness and mild, high near 60, wind south 6-12 m.p.h.
A high pressure system over the eastern U.S. will produce several more days of mild weather. Clockwise flow around the high will generate southerly winds which will keep a flow of warm air over Ohio. More moisture will be in the flow on Thursday, which will contribute to an increase in clouds. An approaching cold front will lift the air and bring a chance of rain on Friday. Colder air will flow into our area behind the cold front during the weekend. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Sandra** At 4:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday the center of Hurricane Sandra was located at latitude 13.0N and longitude 109.9W which put it about 685 miles south of the southern tip of Baja California. Sandra was moving toward the northwest at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 115 m.p.h. which makes Sandra a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Scale and a major hurricane The minimum surface pressure was 967 mb. Sandra is the ninth major hurricane to form over the Eastern North Pacific during 2015, which is a new record for that basin.
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
