Special Information:
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for the Central and Southern Ohio until 10PM.    Thunderstorms are developing along and north of I-71 and pushing south.   Stronger storms are located near Dayton and also in the Cleveland area with little activity here in Central Ohio.    I am hoping this system will push through the Columbus area with little if any severe weather this afternoon.  We will continue to monitor Doppler 10 and the latest high resolution computer models.   If any severe weather develops…it may happen south of Columbus.


Inconvenient Weather:  Showers and thunderstorms this evening could be severe with damaging winds and large hail.   Most of the storms will push south of the area by 8PM.   

Stats:  Average high 85 average low 66.  Record high 99 (1933)  Record low 51(1981)  Sunset 8:53PM and sunrise 6:23AM.
