We received reports of several trees downed in Newcomerstown after last night’s severe thunderstorms from Alex McCarthy (Tusc Co EM). The last I heard was that five trees fell and damaged homes there. There were also reports of downed trees in neighboring counties.
After a stormy evening, a peach of a summer day lies ahead. High pressure over the Ohio River Valley will bring us a mostly sunny day with afternoon temperatures in the low 80s. You will also notice the humidity will be much more tolerable today as well.
After a dry night tonight and Wednesday morning, a weak front will sink south through Ohio during the afternoon. With just enough instability present, this could spark an isolated shower or thunderstorm tomorrow afternoon. I don’t think it’s a big threat, but I can’t rule it out either.
The SPC wants to even include a Marginal Risk for a gusty storm tomorrow, but the odds favor better chances to our north.
Dry weather and sunshine will return Thursday and Friday under building high pressure. We will also notice it feeling more ‘summery’ with warmer temperatures and increasing humidity. It will actually turn quite muggy toward the end of the work week and through the weekend.
