T-storms to our west and east
Our last cold front that left the area yesterday left us with a northwest wind to bring in cloud cover for today. Despite some of the cloud cover wanting to stick with us this evening, we’ll stay dry as we turn a bit chilly for tonight. However, the cold front is still spawning some t-storms for parts of the Great Lakes and the Ohio River Valley. With an upper level wave working with lift, moisture warmth and instability ahead of the cold front, a slight risk for severe weather has been outlined for central Ohio and eastern Kentucky. The strongest t-storms in this region will be capable of damaging straight-line winds and some isolated tornadoes. Elsewhere, the cold front working into the southeastern United States will spawn scattered t-storms. With a marginal risk for much of the southeast, that activity for the afternoon and evening will stay below severe levels. Another cold front and upper level wave is working across the northwestern United States. That brought up a marginal risk for a few severe t-storms for parts of Idaho and Montana. If any scattered t-storms that way for the afternoon or evening get strong enough, some hail and gusty wind can’t be ruled out.
