Enhanced risk of severe storms, damaging winds and possible tornadoes; What to expect

MIAMI VALLEY — Starting today through tomorrow morning, the Miami Valley will deal with its first severe weather chance of the “spring” season.

Several different opportunities for storms will come through, but it won’t rain all the time by any means.

Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Austin Chaney has been monitoring this system for days. He’ll have the track, timing, and what to expect on News Center 7 at 5:00, 5:30, and 6:00.

>>Very warm today; Chance of showers, storms through early tomorrow

A few scattered storms are possible late-morning and early-afternoon. The severe weather risk at this time will be slim to none.

At this time, the greatest risk for strong to severe storms will be late overnight and early Wednesday. The Storm Prediction Center has the entire Miami Valley under a slight risk (level 2) of 5 for strong to severe storms.


While we could see an isolated storm during the daytime hours, the greatest risk for severe looks to arrive after 9 PM. Strong to severe storms remain possible from then through the early morning hours of Wednesday.


All severe weather threats are possible including damaging winds, large hail, and even a few tornadoes.


Now is the time to know how you will receive alerts, and what you will do once you get those alerts. Have your NOAA Weather Radio turned on. Have your WHIO Weather App push notifications turned on. Make sure your W.E.A. alerts are activated. If a tornado warning comes out tonight, go to an interior-most room on the lowest level of your home. If you have a basement, seek shelter there.
