HEAT ADVISORY. Overnight: partly cloudy, low near 70. Saturday: hot and humid, chance of an isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm, high near 90, wind south 6-12 m.p.h.

***HEAT ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory that will be in effect until 8:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday. Clockwise flow around a high pressure system centered over the western Atlantic Ocean will generate southerly winds which will continue to transport hot and humid air over Ohio. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create significant heat stress. As the surface temperature warms during the afternoon, the lower atmosphere will become more unstable. Sinking air on the eastern side of an upper level ridge over the Central U.S. will inhibit thunderstorm development. Isolated showers and storms could develop in areas where the instability is able to break the cap created by the sinking air. ***Central Pacific Tropical Storm Darby*** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Tropical Storm Darby was located at latitude 18.8N and longitude 153.9W which put it about 100 miles southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Darby was moving toward the west at 9 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 50 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1002 mb. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Oahu, Hawaii County and Maui County including Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Kauai. ***Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Frank*** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday the center of Tropical Storm Frank was located at latitude 18.8N and longitude 110.2W which put it about 285 miles south of the southern tip of Baja California. Frank was moving toward the west-northwest at 8 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 65 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 996 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
