Overnight: cloudy, low near 30. Friday: sunny in the morning, increasing cloudiness in the afternoon, high near 50, wind south 6-12 m.p.h.

A surface high pressure system centered over the Great Lakes will move east during the next several days. Clockwise flow around the high will produce southerly winds which will transport warmer, more humid air over the Ohio River Valley. As the high moves east, a cold front will move toward Ohio. Clouds associated with the cold front will reach Ohio on Friday afternoon. The cold front will produce showers and isolated thunderstorms when it lifts the air and the rain could reach the state on Friday evening. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue during Friday night. A low pressure system will develop along the front southwest of Ohio and the low will slow the eastward motion of the front on Saturday morning. The low will move toward our area and bring another chance for showers and thunderstorms on Saturday afternoon and evening.
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
