Severe weather is moving through the mid-south and heading this way. While it's unlikely we'll see any tornadic storms tonight, I wouldn't rule out a few rumbles of thunder and gusty winds.

Western Kentucky is in a favorable area of instability to support these tornadoes. Central Ohio on the other hand isn't favorably setup for a severe weather outbreak.
First, the storms will be moving in to our area after sunset. With early spring storm systems, most fire power is taken away with the setting of the sun. Also, while a warm day today, it isn't a particularly humid day, with dewpoints in the mid 40's. So any forcing moving in from the south will be met with resistance from an unfavorable atmosphere.
But expect to hear some thunder while you sleep tonight.
