A surface high pressure system centered northwest of the Great Lakes will move east on Friday and it will push a cold front toward Ohio. At the same time an upper level low over Iowa will move toward Ohio. The upper low contains slightly cooler air and it will make the atmosphere more unstable when it approaches the state. The cold front will lift the air and it could generate showers and thunderstorms. The front will slow when it nears Ohio on Friday night. The high pressure system will start to push the front southward across the state on Saturday morning and the front could produce new showers and thunderstorms. After the front passes northerly winds will transport slightly cooler and less humid air into the area.**Tropical Storm Ernesto** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Storm Ernesto was located at latitude 44.1N and longitude 38.9W which put it about 710 miles east of Cape Race, Newfoundland. Ernesto was moving toward the northeast at 22 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 45 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1007 mb. **Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Lane** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Hurricane Lane was located latitude 11.2N and longitude 129.8W which put it about 1780 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Lane was moving toward the west-northwest at 15 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 75 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 992 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
