Thunderstorm chance is increasing, and some could be strong

Check out how warm it was yesterday… WOW…

That is the warmest we’ve been since September!  We were able to get so high because the sun came out and remained with us through most of the day.  No showers/t’storms developed, either… so temps soared!

Today, it looks like the same set-up:

But we do have a slightly higher rain chance.  This morning some widely scattered showers have developed, so don’tModels sag that front a bit more south into our area this afternoon… and the best chance of thunderstorms will be closest to the boundary.  Here’s how t’storm chances will play out today:

Even though there’s only a 30% chance in the Dayton area… any thunderstorm that develops does have the potential to be strong to severe.  Here is the ELEVATED risk area, highlighted by the SPC:

severe

The main threat will be strong winds… but large hail is also possible.  We will keep you posted on-air and online.  On Thursday, the strong cold front will increase the chance of thunderstorms even more so and any of them could be severe again.

Yesterday, I got to go speak with students at Jane Chance Elementary School in Miamisburg all about severe weather and how to read weather maps.  We had a great time, and they were so sharp–asking fantastic questions.  Thanks to the school for having me!

    There will be thunderstorms likely at the start of the game, but quickly tapering off through the evening. Breezy & turning cooler.
