Overnight: partly cloudy, low near 60. Wednesday: warmer and more humid, high in the mid 80s, wind south 8-14 m.p.h. Wednesday night: chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, low in the upper 60s. Thursday: chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind southwest 10-18 m.p.h.
High clouds from weather systems to our west will move across Ohio during the overnight hours. Clockwise flow around a surface high pressure system centered over the Atlantic Ocean will transport more humid air over the Ohio River Valley on Wednesday. The increase in humidity could create enough potential instability to give us a chance for isolated late day showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday. A low pressure system over the North Central U.S. will move east and pull a cold front toward Ohio on Thursday. As the cold front lifts the humid air, it could generate scattered showers and thunderstorms. The cold front will move across the state on Thursday night. The chance of rain will continue until after the cold front moves east of our area. ***Tropical Storm Gaston*** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Wednesday the center of Tropical Storm Gaston was located at latitude 16.1N and longitude 39.4W which put it about 1020 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands. Gaston was moving toward the northwest at 16 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 70 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 999 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
