A cold front will push through West Central Ohio early this afternoon sparking off one more round of showers and thunderstorms in the region. This front isn’t a very strong one, but the air mass it is running into is a VERY warm and humid one. Showers and thunderstorms are already beginning to form into parts of Illinois and Indiana along this front as seen here…..
Current short term models have these storms organizing into a squall line and moving through the region in between the 1 and 3 PM timeframe. Here is a look at the PREDICTED radar around 2 PM.
With temperatures in the 80’s and dew points in the low 70’s (flat out tropical!) these storms should have no problem finding fuel. Damaging winds will be the biggest threat as they pass through with the highest probability of damaging winds mainly centered over Ohio.
PLEASE tune in for the noon show on Your Hometown Lima Stations, Brian Schroeder will have the latest on these storms!
These storms will be out of here by 4 or 5 o-clock this evening. After that, we are in for some MUCH needed dry weather here in the region. Things will drastically calm down towards the weekend with a lot of harmless sunshine in the forecast 🙂
