Risk for damaging winds, hail, tornado Wednesday; the conditions needed for a severe storm

DAYTON — There is a risk of severe weather in the Miami Valley on Wednesday, but the atmosphere has to meet a few conditions for this storm to come to fruition.

Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Austin Chaney will break down those conditions and the latest on what we’re tracking LIVE on News Center 7 at 11.

That is a big if in our forecast.

We won’t be able to fully know how the atmosphere is going to behave until we get the morning showers out of here Wednesday morning, Chaney said.

For that reason, we’ll have to pay close attention to the forecast as it evolves Wednesday.

If the severe weather risk does materialize, all hazards are possible.

Damaging winds, hail, and even an isolated tornado or two are possible Wednesday afternoon.

The Storm Prediction Center has the Miami Valley under a level 2/5, slight risk, for severe storms for that reason.

If the morning showers and clouds linger that will go a long way toward squashing any severe risk tomorrow afternoon.
