Storm Center 7

Very warm through Wednesday morning; Rounds of thunderstorms expected


  • Very warm through early Wednesday morning
  • Few rounds of thunderstorms expected
  • A few storms may be strong to severe



MONDAY: Beautiful sunny skies from today give way to a chance for a few thunderstorms late tonight into early Wednesday morning. Not everyone will see storms with this first round tonight. Those that do could see locally heavy rainfall, occasional cloud-to-ground lightning, and even some small hail. The SPC is giving the Miami Valley a level 1/5, with Marginal, risk for severe storms tonight into early Wednesday morning.

TUESDAY: A few different rounds of storms are possible Tuesday into Tuesday night. The early AM round will be done around daybreak. Round two is possible Tuesday afternoon. The Tuesday afternoon storms will mainly be focused across the northern Miami Valley. A few could be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts and hail being the main threats.

An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Daytime highs reach the upper 60s. Round three is possible late Tuesday night. The overnight storms bring mainly a damaging wind gust and hail threat yet again, however an isolated tornado remains possible mainly over the NW portion of the Miami Valley.

The Storm Prediction Center gives the Miami Valley a level 1 to 2 risk for severe storms (Marginal to slight risk) with the higher risk being located across the northwest. It should be noted... there will be plenty of dry time in between each opportunity for storms, and storms won’t hit every location with each round. Don’t let your guard down if you experience a lot of dry time on Tuesday.

WEDNESDAY: A round of storms is possible early Wednesday morning. Like with Tuesday, an isolated strong to severe storm may be possible. Temperatures will be in the low 60s Wednesday morning. A sharp drop in temperatures is expected into Wednesday afternoon. We’ll be in the 30s by then! A few snow flurries are also possible. Breezy Wednesday afternoon adding a real shock to the system.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny behind Wednesday’s cold front. Cooler with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

FRIDAY: Increasing clouds with a chance for a few showers by Friday evening and overnight. Mild with highs near 50.

SATURDAY: Partly cloudy and mild with highs near 60 degrees.

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny, warm and breezy. Highs climbing to the upper 60s.

MONDAY: Increasing clouds but still warm and breezy. We have the potential for our first 70 degree day of the season.
