Friday Weather: A low risk for strong/severe storms this afternoon and evening
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across east-central Ohio today in association with the crossing of a weak cold front. Depending on how much clearing we can manage today, some storms could get a little feisty. Strong gusty wind and hail will be possible in the strongest thunderstorms.
The Storm Prediction Center has all of Ohio under a ‘Marginal Risk’ for severe thunderstorms mainly for late this afternoon through this evening.
A Marginal Risk means that isolated severe thunderstorms are possible anywhere within the highlighted area. The threat a severe storm in any one community is low, but not zero. Widespread severe thunderstorms are not expected.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are already moving into northwest Ohio this morning and activity will continue to shift southeast ahead and along the boundary through the day.
Showers and storms will become more widespread in coverage as we warm up this afternoon. ‘Prime time’ for strong storms in the Tuscarawas Valley region will be during the mid afternoon into early evening hours.
Eighteen hour futurecast (through midnight tonight)”
Showers and thunderstorms will taper off toward sunset this evening as that weak boundary exits southeast of the region. A few scattered showers may continue through midnight.
The strength of thunderstorms here in the Valley area will depend on cloud cover we manage to get as things heat up. Less clouds and more sun will provide more ‘fuel’ for thunderstorm development.
