***FLOOD ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service office in Wilmington, Ohio has issued a Flood Advisory that includes Columbus and Franklin County. It is in effect until 1:30 p.m. EDT on Saturday. Flash Flood Warnings and Watches have been issued for other counties as well. Storms are training along a slow moving warm front. The front will eventually move farther north later today. A strong surface high pressure system centered off the coast of the southeast U.S. will produce southerly winds which will transport unseasonably warm air over Ohio during the weekend. The southerly flow will push a warm front across the state during the first half of Saturday. As the front moves north, warm humid air will rise over denser air near the surface. Showers will form in the rising air and some areas will be unstable enough to create thunderstorms. Some storms could become strong and drop heavy rain. The showers and thunderstorms will end after the warm front moves north of our area. More sunshine and southerly winds could push the temperature into the upper 80s on Sunday afternoon.
