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.

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...

As I sort of eluded to in yesterday's post, a Moderate Risk has been issued for areas to our west today. The SPC has an area stretching roughly from Cincinnati to the southeastern corner of Iowa:
This area isn't too far off from the area I highlighted yesterday that I said would be the area of most significant severe weather.
This Moderate Risk has been issued due to the high confidence that one or more MCS's may develop in this area late...

This morning's low temp didn't quite get as low as expected. I was thinking maybe 51° here in Canal Winchester. We got to a crisp 52.8° at 6:17am, which was enough for my daughter to exclaim, "I don't know if we can go swimming at daycare today!"
Well our high has hit 76° so far today with clouds streaming in, so maybe no pool today after all.
Tomorrow on the other hand looks like a much better day for a swim. Looking at the forecas...

This morning in Canal Winchester we woke up to a refreshing 57.5° as our low. That's about 6° below our normal low, and quite a difference from your normal summer heat. Look at it this way, our lowest minimum temp so far for meteorological summer (June - August) was one week ago today when we hit a chilly 50.6°. It was enough to make me roll the windows up on my way to work that morning. So far our record high minimum temp has been hit twice, once in Jun...
