Overnight: showers, low in the upper 50s. Friday: chance for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms, high in the upper 60s, wind east 6-12 m.p.h. Friday night: cloudy, chance for isolated showers, low in the mid 50s. Saturday: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the upper 60s, wind south 7-14 m.p.h.
An upper level low centered south of the Ohio River will drift back toward the north during the next several days. Although the upper low is slowly weakening, it still contains a pool of colder air. Each day when the temperature at the surface warms, the vertical difference between the cooler air aloft and the warmer air near the ground makes the atmosphere unstable. The instability allows showers and isolated thunderstorms to develop. Showers and storms weaken in the evening as the temperature near the ground cools. That pattern will continue again on Friday. The upper low will be closer to the Great Lakes on Saturday and that could make the air a little more stable, which would reduce the chance for showers and thunderstorms. ***HURRICANE MATTHEW*** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Friday the center of Hurricane Matthew was located at latitude 13.7N and longitude 70.8W which put it about 105 miles northeast of Punta Gallinas, Columbia. Matthew was moving toward the west-southwest at 12 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 115 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 968 mb. The government of Columbia has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for the portion of the coast from the Columbia/Venezuela border to Riohacha.
