A low pressure system over east Texas will move toward Ohio on Thursday. Southerly winds will transport more humid air over the state. Showers will develop during the overnight hours when the humid air rises over denser air near the surface. The could be enough instability in isolated locations to allow for the development of thunderstorms. Rising motion will increase on Thursday as the low approaches the state and the chance for showers and thunderstorms will continue. The low will move over Ohio on Thursday night and it will pull a cold front across the state. Northwesterly winds will transport colder air over Ohio after the cold front passes. Showers will taper off on Friday afternoon when the low and cold front move east of our area.
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
