Overnight: showers, chance of thunderstorms, low near 70. Wednesday: showers and chance for thunderstorms in the morning, temperature nearly steady around 70, wind becoming north 11-18 m.p.h.

A surface high pressure system over the Central U.S. will move eastward on Wednesday and the high will push a cold front across Ohio. The front will generate showers and isolated thunderstorms when it lifts the air. Clockwise flow around the high will produce northerly winds after the cold front passes and those winds will bring cooler air to the state. The center of the high will move over Ohio on Wednesday night. Sinking motion above the high will cause cloudiness to decrease and there should be more sunshine on Thursday. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Storm Rosa** At 11:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday the center of Tropical Storm Rosa was located at latitude 15.1N and longitude 109.7W which put it about 445 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Rosa was moving toward the west-northwest at 9 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 65 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 997 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
