In advance of the potential for strong to severe storms, the Storm Prediction Center will issue a report that is known as their convective outlook. This is used to help highlight the regions that will have the greatest ingredients for storm development.
One of the more commonly used outlooks is the ‘Slight Risk’.
This means a few storms could reach severe criteria; wind damage is possible as well as hail up to one inch in diameter with an isolated spin-up tornado.
If the Storm Prediction Center believes there is a greater risk for severe storms, they will elevate a region to an Enhanced Risk.
This indicated that within the region highlighted, there could be more numerous severe storms and the systems potential longevity is greater. There is also a higher risk for several damage reports, hail one to two inches in diameter and a few tornados possible.

— Wright State University officials are beginning the search for the school’s next provost.
The university is aiming to find a provost in time for the new administrator to start at the school on July 1, the first day of the fiscal year and the same day president Cheryl Schrader will celebrate her one-year anniversary at Wright State.
The provost is the chief academic officer for the university and is the second in command.
The university has hired the search firm Greenwood Asher to assist with the search, according to an email sent to campus on Monday. The firm, which is based in Miramar Beach, Florida, has assisted in searches for Ohio State University, the University of Oregon and several other colleges.
This news organization has submitted a public records request for a copy of Wright State’s contract with Greenwood Asher. Nominations for the provost position can be made on a dedicated web page for the search.
Typically when colleges hire a search firm, they are able to shield the names of the candidates who apply from public records requests. Wright State took a similar approach with applicants for the president’s job, until a search committee narrowed down the pool to three people.
STORIES WORTH SHARING
Like with the presidential search in 2016 and 2017, a search committee including Wright State administrators, faculty and students will consider provost candidates. The committee will be led by faculty senate president Travis Doom and WSU trustee and Fifth Third Bank executive Stephanie Green, according to the university.
Together the search firm and committee will host a forum on the provost search at 9:30 a.m. Friday in the student union’s apollo room. The forum will be streamed live on Wright State’s website.
Outgoing provost Tom Sudkamp announced in December that he would step down from his position on June 30. He was appointed provost for a three year term in 2015 under then-president David Hopkins, who resigned abruptly in March as the university struggled to deal with its budget problems.
Wright State trustees slashed more than $30.8 million from the school’s budget in June as an attempt to begin correcting years of overspending.

HAMILTON — Sweden Creme owners are looking to sell after five years of owning the longtime Hamilton business.
“Our family has had a lot of changes in the past couple of years,” co-owner Benjamin Price said via social media. “Children being adopted, family more busy with the ebb and flow of life! We always wanted to operate Sweden Creme as a family, and when the day came that we all could not be involved, that would be the day to pass it on to the next family!”
MORE POPULAR STORIES
The business started in 1950 as Sweden Creme before a brief switch to various different names over the years, including Big Daddy’s, before Price and his family chose to re-brand it with its original name.
Sale of the business, which serves Dixie Burgers in addition to ice cream, will include the property and the building at 2047 Pleasant Ave., as well Sweden Creme’s website and equipment, plus the training it takes to run such an establishment.
“It will be available,” said Price, who runs Pleasant Avenue Barber Shop next door. “We’re not going anywhere.”
The seven-month-a-year business will hold an open house from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday.
