Heavy Rain Expected Today

By: Buckey2745, 2:30 PM GMT on August 21, 2014

The SPC has a slight risk for severe weather out for the western half of Ohio, but I don't think that'll be our concern today. I've been watching an area of storms develop for the past few hours and it looks like training will be an issue today.

Training is when multiple heavy storms move over the same areas consecutively over several hours, causing torrential rainfall rates and sometimes causing localized flash flooding.

Watching this large ar...

Is It Getting Colder?

By: Buckey2745, 2:05 AM GMT on August 17, 2014

I think it's simple guy's science. You look at a certain parameter over a short time period and you make a pattern out of it. In elementary and middle school sometimes they'd give you these "fill in the blank" equations to finish the pattern and honestly it wasn't always the easiest pattern to pick up. But this will be easy for you. Check out these patterns.

First, the lowest temperatures the last three Januarys:

2012: 8.8°
2013: 4.4.&...

A Dead Period

Quoting 1. TheHermit43130:

My recollection may be incorrect, but it seems like there hasn't been a "notable" summer storm since June 2012, and no notable winter storms since February 2010. At least that's how it seems to be in my little part of central Ohio.

While I do concede there have been some notable temperature abnormalities, and Hurricane Sandy was interesting, though it didn't affect us very much, and we have gotten some snow (accumul...

And Now The Cool Down

By: Buckey2745, 6:03 PM GMT on July 28, 2014

Yesterday's storms have come and gone, with Columbus being spared any Severe Thunderstorm or Tornado Warnings. Overall Central Ohio faired pretty well, with only a couple areas being investigated today by the NWS for potential tornado damage in Highland and Champaign Counties.

Actually just as I typed that the Champaign County storm has been confirmed to be an EF0. Touchdown was very brief, only 100 yards, and no injuries reported luckily.

July 27th Severe Threat

By: Buckey2745, 5:31 PM GMT on July 27, 2014

This afternoon's severe threat has been ramped down from a Moderate Risk over eastern Kentucky, just to Slight Risk for the entire region. It seems likely that a Watch will be issued for our area soon, as the SPC has placed a mesoscale discussion:

I actually think we may see our second Tornado Watch of the season, due to the fact any singular cells that develop will be in an environment favorable for rotation.

Right now we are between two...
