Severe storms are set to roll through parts of Ohio later this evening and into the overnight hours as a strong cold front moves through the state. Some of these storms may be severe with damaging winds and large hail as the primary threats. A few tornadoes are also possible, generally in Southwest Ohio.
Here’s a look at our latest severe weather map:
Storms will move through around or after 8 PM and move across Ohio overnight, with the storms also starting to dissipate after 1 AM. By Friday morning, the storms will be moving out of southeastern Ohio. Our latest Futurecast simulated radar product is below.
Looking at our NeoRisk, damaging winds will be the biggest threat followed by large hail. Winds could exceed 60 MPH at times and hail could be larger than 1” in diameter. Again, a few tornadoes are possible, primarily in southwestern Ohio but that threat remains fairly low. Localized flooding is also possible.
We will continue to monitor the latest trends and provide as many updates as we can through Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to stay with Ohio First Warn Weather and local media outlets through the evening for any severe weather updates.
