As expected, showers and thunderstorms have set their sights on West Central Ohio for tonight.
There is still a risk for isolated strong storms for the next few hours across Indiana and parts of Illinois, but with the loss of daytime heating, the storms will lose their intensity overnight. About .25″ to .50″ of rain is expected.
Rain is expected to easily come to an end in the region by sunrise Friday morning, we’ll probably be dry up until about 11AM or noon. That’s when a second area of low pressure will move through along a cold front bringing another round of showers and thunderstorms to the region.
As the front shifts through West Central Ohio the severe weather threat will shift to the East with it. This time keeping the threat for strong to severe storms mainly to the EAST of us.
With the front being in our vicinity during the afternoon hours I’m not quite ready to completely ignore the potential for a strong to severe storm. But the overall threat is low here in West Central Ohio.
Either way, we are looking at some accumulating rainfall. Between the two rounds of rain, we’ll probably end of with around an inch of rain across the region by the time Friday night rolls around.
