Hello… late blog today! I’ve been working with our new meteorologist, Brandon Redmond… getting him familiar with our computer system, and he’s even showing me some of his tools! VERY cool stuff… all things we’ll use to track some stronger storms later today. You will be seeing Brandon on occasion here on the blog, and also on-air on Channel 2. He storm chases, too… so he will likely be bringing us some very cool images.
Scattered showers moved through the Miami Valley this morning… we even heard a few rumbles of thunder. Nothing has been anywhere near severe, but this is just round one. We are expecting another round of stronger storms that will come through during the evening hours. A strong storm will be heading our way, and during the late afternoon, we’re expecting a line of thunderstorms to develop to our west… you can see it on one of our high-resolution models around 6pm:
Those thunderstorms will then move through the Miami Valley… and some of them could be strong to severe, as the SPC has placed us in an ELEVATED risk for severe storms:
The best chance for this to occur will be between 6 and 11pm… so if you have evening plans, stay aware of the changing weather situation. Before you head out, check out Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis’ updates between 5 and 6:30pm.

The weekend looks pretty good–cool and dry Saturday, with summerlike weather returning Sunday, along with the chance of a few showers and thunderstorms. BUT it won’t rain all day, we’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the mid-70s!
