EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING. Overnight: partly cloudy, low in the mid 70s. Friday: hot and humid, slight chance of showers and thunderstorms, high in the lower 90s, wind southwest 11-16 m.p.h. Friday night: partly cloudy, low in the mid 70s. Saturday: hot and humid, slight chance of showers and thunderstorms, high in the mid 90s, wind southwest 8-14 m.p.h.
***EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING*** The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning which is in effect until 8:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday. Clockwise flow around a surface high pressure system centered over the western Atlantic Ocean will produce southwesterly winds during the next several days. Those winds will transport warm humid air over Ohio. An upper level ridge over the eastern U.S. also contains warmer air, which will make the atmosphere more stable. When the remnants of a cluster of thunderstorms over the Upper Midwest move over the state on Friday, they may produce enough rising motion to allow showers and thunderstorms to develop in the more stable air. The same weather pattern will be in place on Saturday.
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
