Overnight: chance for showers and thunderstorms, low near 70. Thursday: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind southwest 10-17 m.p.h. Thursday night: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, low near 70. Friday: a little cooler and less humid, high in the lower 80s, wind north 6-12 m.p.h.
A band of showers and thunderstorms that are part of a Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) will move across Central Ohio during the overnight hours. A low pressure system moving north of the Great Lakes will pull a cold front toward Ohio on Thursday. As the temperature at the surface warms, the atmosphere could become unstable. Boundaries left behind by previous thunderstorms could act as local zones of convergence and rising motion. Isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop during the afternoon. The cold front will move across Ohio on Thursday night. When the cold front lifts the warm humid air, it could generate additional showers and thunderstorms. After the cold front passes, northerly winds will bring slightly cooler and drier air on Friday. ***Tropical Storm Gaston*** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Storm Gaston was located at latitude 20.4N and longitude 44.4W which put it about 1160 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands. Gaston was moving toward the northwest at 17 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 70 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 992 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
