Storms on the way

Pretty jealous of Bill Kelly.  I pitched the idea about a month ago to head out to the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center and National Severe Storms Laboratory.  Not to mention the Plains to go storm chasing.  They picked a heck of a week to go out... There are tornadic storms moving their way toward him currently...
Here is the radar from earlier and you can see the track of the storms moving toward my finger, which is where Bill is currently.
Ohio has its chance for storms on Friday morning, but mainly strong winds and hail for the threats. 

First, we have a REALLY warm day on Thursday.  The winds will really pick up out of the South and that will increase our moisture and temps into the low-mid 80's.  With our temps getting that warm and humidity as high as it is expected, there is the chance for a few pop-up storms in the afternoon.  Be sure to keep an eye on things because if anything does pop then it could get strong quickly.  Our main chance for rain will be early Friday, though.  The line of storms is expected in the Columbus area between about 3 and 7AM on Friday.  There will be a little lingering rain through the morning, then we dry out for the weekend.  We will also cool off considerably for the weekend with highs in the 50's and lows near freezing.  I will have an update on the storms tomorrow, in depth, so be sure to check back in. Have a good one!
