Overnight: clear, low near 60. Friday: partly cloudy, high in the mid 80s, wind southwest 6-12 m.p.h. Friday night: partly cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Saturday: increasing cloudiness, chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 80s, wind southwest 8-14 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered east of the Great Lakes will move slowly southeastward during the next several days. Clockwise flow around the high will produce southwesterly winds which will transport warm air over the Ohio River Valley. Those winds will also bring more humid air on Saturday. Isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop when the air near the surface warms and the atmosphere becomes more unstable. ***SUBTROPICAL STORM ALBERTO*** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Friday the center of Subtropical Storm Alberto was located at latitude 19.4N and longitude 86.3W which put it about 85 miles south-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico. Alberto was moving toward the east at 2 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 40 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1005 mb. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the portion of the U.S. coast from Indian Pass, Florida to Grand Isle, Louisiana including New Orleans. The government of Mexico has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the portion of the coast from Tulum to Cabo Catoche. The government of Cuba has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the province of Pinar del Rio.
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
