A surface high pressure system centered north of Minnesota is moving southeast and it is pushing a cold front toward Ohio. The cold front will reach Central Ohio during the middle of the day on Friday. The air over the state is relatively dry. So, when the cold front lifts the air, it will likely only produce scattered showers and a chance for isolated thunderstorms. Showers could reach our area during Friday morning and continue into the afternoon. It looks like the cold front will keep moving across the state and the rain could move south of our area by Friday evening. After the cold front passes, the high pressure system will generate northerly winds which will bring mild, dry air for the start of the weekend.
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
