Storms for Halloween

Still on track for the storms for tomorrow.  I have been busy as a bee at work and I have not agreed with the forecasts coming out of the Storm Prediction Center over the last two days.  They have kept the threat for severe weather to the south, but are finally including parts of Ohio in the mix.  I still think they could extend the Slight Risk, in the yellow, a little further north.  More on that in a second.

Today scattered light rain showers... hit or miss.  There may even be a rumble of thunder or two, but today will not be the main concern.  Tomorrow, Halloween, we start off with dry conditions with storms arriving for the late afternoon and especially for the evening.  Winds, before the storms, for the evening tomorrow will be sustained at least 30 mph, if not stronger.  The winds within the thunderstorms will be even stronger.  The main threat will be strong winds and there is even the possibility for some isolated tornadoes just due to the fact that this front is such a collision of colder air and the mixing, or shear, will be present.  Ohio will be on the marginal side of the severe weather, with the strongest storms to the south and west.  Make sure to stay alert later tomorrow and turn on your weather radio.

We then have a few lingering early showers Friday, then a few late day showers Saturday and temperatures return to the 50's for highs.  Back to late-fall temperatures for Ohio.  Keep the umbrella handy and have a good one!
