UPDATE on Tonight's storms

Warmest day of the year so far... We still could bump up a degree or two, but 85° is our current temp at 5PM in Columbus.
Good news is that Moderate risk was dropped by SPC, Storm Prediction Center.  It still keeps Western Ohio under a Slight risk for severe storms overnight.
They also dropped the severe wind fields. 

There is currently no watch or warning for Central Ohio.  There is also no discussion of one since the main threat of storms will not arrive until well after midnight.  IF a watch was issued later, I would bet on a Severe Thunderstorm Watch.  The winds for our area are not as conducive for tornadic storms, but the chance is not completely ruled out.  Main line of storms will roll into Western Ohio around 2-6AM and then Columbus Metro area between 4-8AM and then kick out to the east by noon with lingering showers.

Once the line of storms moves through there will be a few lingering showers through midday along with quickly falling temps.

Saturday and Sunday we remain partly cloudy and dry for the most part with highs in the 50`s and overnight lows in the 30`s.  Don`t put away the jacket just yet.  Have a good one!
