Friday Morning Update: Severe thunderstorms possible today

A strong cold front will cross east-central Ohio today bringing a threat for severe thunderstorms to the Tuscarawas Valley this afternoon. The threat for severe storms will continue into the early evening.

The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted ALL of east central Ohio counties for the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms today.

The primary threat this afternoon will come from damaging straight line winds in thunderstorms. Large hail is also possible but less of a threat. Conditions are not all that favorable for rotating storms or tornadoes.

Although today’s storms will have the potential for heavy downpours they are expected to through quickly. While rain may be heavy at times periods of heavy rainfall should be brief reducing the threat for flash flood.

Temperatures will quickly warm under sunshine this morning. The warm humid airmass will destabilize early this afternoon just as a wall of cool dry air approaches from the west.

Morning model guidance suggests that there may be two squall lines that move through east-central Ohio with the first line approaching around noon/1:00 p.m. this afternoon. The hi-res model also shows a second line developing behind the first arriving here around 3:00 p.m.

Eighteen hour hi-res FutureCast radar:

Both lines will travel quickly east and exit the region early this evening. Thereafter, a few showers may linger until around 11:00 p.m.

Remain weather aware this afternoon – especially if outdoors. Have more than one way to receive severe weather warnings – NOAA Weather Radio, local media outlets or weather app. Outdoor tornado sirens are not acceptable as a primary warning method.

Outdoor furniture, trash cans, trampolines and lawn ornaments can become airborne missiles in high winds if not secured.

REMINDER: WIND IS WIND. Straight line wind can cause just as much damage as a tornado.

Temperatures on Saturday will be as much as ten degrees below normal behind the front. Although skies will be mostly sunny tomorrow, we won’t warm much more than the low 70s for afternoon highs.

Temperatures will begin to recover on Sunday with highs in the upper 70s. Increasing clouds in the afternoon will bring the chance for showers Sunday evening and Sunday night.
