Overnight: clear, low in the mid 30s. Friday: increasing cloudiness, not as cool, high near 60, wind southwest 11-17 m.p.h. Friday night: showers likely, low near 50. Saturday: cloudy, windy, chance for late day showers, high in the mid 50s, wind west 12-22 m.p.h.
A surface high pressure system centered over southeastern Ohio will move eastward on Friday. Clockwise flow around the high will produce southwesterly winds which will transport warmer air over the state. The temperature could warm to near 60 on Friday afternoon. The southwesterly winds will also transport moister air and cloudiness will increase on Friday. Showers are likely to develop on Friday evening when the moister air rises over denser air at the surface. A low pressure system passing north of the Great Lakes will pull two cold fronts across Ohio on Saturday. The first front will move across the state on Saturday morning. The air behind the first cold front will only be a little cooler. The low will also pull a second, stronger cold front across the Ohio on Saturday night and cold front will produce showers when it lifts the air. The air behind the second cold front will be colder and it is likely to be brisk and chilly on Sunday. **Eastern North Pacific Tropical Depression Twentythree-E** At 11:00 a.m. EDT on Friday the center of Tropical Depression Twentythree-E was located at latitude 13.3N and longitude 91.9W which put it about 115 miles south-southeast of Tapachula, Mexico. It was moving toward the west-northwest at 2 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind speed was 35 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 1006 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
