Overnight: drizzle and fog, temperature nearly steady around 50. Monday: chance of showers, high in the mid 50s, wind west 11-17 m.p.h. Monday night: Frost Advisory, decreasing cloudiness, low in the lower 30s. Tuesday: sunny, high in the mid 50s, wind west 10-16 m.p.h.
***FROST ADVISORY*** The National Weather Service has issued a Frost Advisory that is in effect from 2:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday. A flow of moist air will contribute to drizzle and fog during the overnight hours. A cold front will move across Ohio on Monday. The cold front will produce showers when it lifts the humid air. The eastern end of a surface high pressure system will extend over Ohio on Tuesday. Sinking motion above the high will reduce the cloud cover. Clearer skies will allow more energy to escape to space and some areas could have frost on Tuesday morning. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Tara** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Monday the center of Tropical Storm Tara was located at latitude 17.6N and longitude 104.4W which put it about 95 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico. Tara was moving toward the west-northwest at 2 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 45 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1001 mb. A Tropical Storm Watch was issued for the portion of the coast from Punta San Telmo to Cabo Corrientes, Mexico.
