Numerous updates including:
- Improved GFS model to 0.25º resolution model and forecasts increased from 180 to 384 hours.
- Improved Rapid Refresh model offering: 20km resolution model out to 21 hours instead of 18
- Better queueing system to improve system performance and reduce likelihood of incomplete charts

Overnight: partly cloudy, low in the upper 20s. Friday: partly cloudy, high in the mid 40s, wind east 5-9 m.p.h. Friday night: increasing cloudiness, low in the mid 30s. Saturday: showers likely, chance of thunderstorms, high in the mid 50s, wind south 10-17 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system will move east of the Great Lakes on Friday. Clockwise flow around the high will produce easterly winds which will circulate seasonable air over Ohio. A surface low pressure system will develop east of the Rocky Mountains. The low will move toward the Great Lakes and intensify on Saturday. Southerly winds ahead of the low will transport warmer, more humid air over the Ohio River Valley. Showers will develop when the moist air rises over denser air at the surface. The low will pull a cold front toward Ohio and the front could generate thunderstorms when it lifts the air. Locally heavy rain falling on saturated ground could cause flooding. The wind speed will increase on Saturday night when the low strengthens.
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
