I’ll get right to the point, it’s been slow for severe weather thus far this year here in West Central Ohio! (everyone knock on wood right now!) As a matter of fact, according to the NWS office in Northern Indiana (they warn storms for Van Wert, Paulding, Defiance, Putnam, Henry and Allen counties) as of the middle of June, 2014 was on pace to be a record low year for severe weather!
Statistically speaking, this last week of June is typically when West Central Ohio has the best chance for severe weather. As we head into the beginning of July the chance gradually begins to taper off. Here is a graphic from the NWS that shows the probability for severe weather within 25 miles of any point for the last week of June.
As I mentioned, once we head into July the chance begins to drop off.

It looks as if the rest of June will be pretty calm as far as severe weather is concerned with just pop up variety showers and thunderstorms expected into this weekend. Anytime there are storms in the region our new weather app is a great way to track storms!
Have a great weekend everyone!
