The Storm Prediction Center in Oklahoma has placed the lower 75% of Ohio
in a Slight Risk for Severe Weather late afternoon, early evening.
Debris clouds from ongoing storms have burned off providing for enhanced
instability for the area of Western, Southwestern, Central Ohio and
The atmosphere is steadily becoming ripe for Strong to Severe
Thunderstorms. Dew Points @~ 70 degrees F, supporting upper dynamics in
the low and mid levels of the atmosphere, moisture content approaching
the potential for up to two (2) inches of rain, and temperatures at or
about 90 Degrees F all contribute to the potential for Severe Weather.
Additionally, there will several disturbances moving in this general
direction, providing the necessary energy to initialize the storms.
Everyone should stay alert for not only Strong to Severe Storms, but the
potential for flooding. SKYWARN, XWARN, WARN, and Emergency Management
personnel should be prepared to activate if necessary. Remember, heavy
rainfall amounts should be reported to NWS Wilmington, especially in the
category of 1 inch per hour, 1 inch total, and any observed flooding,
along with any observations that meet Severe criteria.
Greatest threat for severe weather appears to be Damaging Straight Line
Winds... Everyone should monitor TV, Radio, and NOAA Weather Radios for
any rapidly changing conditions.
