— A Flood Warning is in effect for the following areas:
Flooding is the second leading cause of weather-related deaths. Do not drive through flooded roadways. When water covers the road, drivers cannot always determine the depth of the water or the condition of the road under the water, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
Shortly before 8:30 p.m., a Severed Thunderstorm Warning was issued by the National Weather Service as a strong to potentially severe line of thunderstorms was approaching the western boarder of Preble County.
This line of storms had a history of producing damaging winds of at least 60 mph, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said. As the line entered the county, it began to bow and break as it moved into the eastern side of the county.
If atmospheric conditions are favorable, the segmenting of the line storms can cause a brief spin-up tornado. The term for this type of tornado is QLCS (Quasi-linear Convective System). QLCS’ tend to be brief and hard to detect.
Tonight: Steady rain will move out, and more quiet conditions will arrive. Mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance to see a spotty shower/sprinkle. Temperatures drop to the 50s.

Tuesday: A mix of sunshine and clouds as temperatures continue to stay cooler in the upper 60s.
Wednesday: Clouds quickly increase and the chance for showers and thunderstorms return as temperatures go soaring back to the 80s.
Thursday: Partly cloudy with the chance for showers and storms in the afternoon and evening. Staying warm with highs in the mid 80s.
