October 6th: Slight Chance of Severe

By: Buckey2745 , 12:55 PM GMT on October 06, 2013

For the first time in what seems like forever the SPC has Central Ohio under a Slight Risk for severe weather today.

This is coming from the warm side of Winter Storm Atlas, the same area that brought over a dozen tornadoes to the Plains on Friday. Our weather won't be nearly that bad. In fact I'd be surprised if that Slight Risk is even warranted.

The reason being this storm system will mainly be a soaker, with the western half of the state being under a Flood Watch. That abundant cloud cover and moisture makes instability pretty unlikely.

The western half of the state has already seen quite a bit of rain yesterday from the warm sector of this system, with us here in Canal Winchester only seeing about 0.28". Expect upwards of an inch more rain here in Columbus before this is all said and done. Temps will drop off as the front comes through and tomorrow will feel a lot more like an early fall day.

UPDATE: 4:46pm
It's possible our thunderstorm warning drought could be over as the cold front is approaching our area with a line of storms. A warning has appeared to our south. This line of storms could easily dump a half an inch of rain:
