Potential Severe Storms Late Today and Tonight



A slow-moving front will start to move across the region late today through Saturday evening. Atmospheric conditions will be favorable for a couple rounds of potential severe thunderstorms along and ahead of the front. At this time, the primary threat will be damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph followed by large hail possible. Because of the strong wind shear, there will be a threat of an isolated

tornado threat possible over northwest Ohio. If a couple rounds of thunderstorms develops and moves over the same areas late today through Saturday evening, localized heavy rainfall may be possible and slight flooding threat may exist.

Timing:
Potential Round #1 – Late this afternoon into the evening

Potential Round #2 – Late overnight tonight

Potential Round #3 – Saturday afternoon and evening
