June 2013: So Far

By: Buckey2745 , 4:12 PM GMT on June 11, 2013

While I haven't written anything in the month of June, it certainly hasn't been quiet... and I had a good reason for the 11 days of silence.

You see, I took a good old fashioned family vacation at the beginning of the month. Sure, it sounds fun, and a little bit of a break from my unhealthy weather obsession until you realize a few days before your trip that the Gulf may see its first named storm while you're at Disney World.

Sure enough, Tropical Storm Andrea dumped 4"+ on my Disney vacation, making it the second storm I've ever experienced... ironically both while being on vacation in Florida:


Ohio Rain
Back at home the rain came down for the first 10 days of June. Four different days saw nearly half an inch or more of rain, putting us at 2.21" for the month already... nearly eclipsing last month's 2.42".

While Canal Winchester hasn't seen a severe thunderstorm warning, northwest Columbus has with a storm near the beginning of the month.

Slow Start to Severe Season
The NWS in Wilmington posted this tweet while I was on vacation chronicling our very slow start to the server weather season. In fact, the slowest start ever:




Wednesday in to Thursday Severe Threat
We transition from talking about the slowest start in Central Ohio severe weather to a serious severe threat on Wednesday in to Thursday morning. The SPC has been highlighting this risk for several days and the threat seems real:



I'll definitely go in to more detail about this tomorrow as I feel like the tornado threat may be the highest we've seen this season, and also an overnight chance of a derecho developing.

I'll write much more tomorrow as Ohio's severe weather ramps up.

UPDATE: 2:40pm Tuesday
AnalogueKid beat me to it in the comment section, but the SPC has already upped tomorrow's risk to Moderate for Central parts of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.


I'm pretty sure this is Central Ohio's first Moderate Risk area of the season, and it pretty much promises a huge day for severe weather here.

I'm still expecting tomorrow afternoon to be more of a supercell threat, with just about any towers that pop to have the high potential to spin, followed by a potential overnight derecho moving in from the Chicago area. Sound familiar?
