Mother's Day Storms

By: Buckey2745 , 10:55 PM GMT on May 11, 2014

On a day without any Slight Risk forecasted for our area, we have a Tornado Warning north of Dayton right now with a cluster of storms that has developed in the afternoon sun.

Circulation isn't very tight in this storm on velocity, but it does have the potential for high winds and hail.

If there is enough rotation in this storm for a spinup, it'll be rain wrapped and very short lived.

I'll keep an eye on this cluster as it heads toward Columbus.

The storms eventually made their way east towards Columbus and sparked our second Severe Thunderstorm Warning of the season. The storm doesn't seem like it'll deliver much of a punch as the VIL shows little hail and winds may not gust above 30mph.

But could still dump half an inch of rain on us since it's not exactly moving quick. I get the feeling the NWS did another one of their precautionary city warnings. They're pretty well known for that.

I wouldn't be surprised if it stormed off and on throughout the night as there are more storms back in Indiana. Everything will eventually begin to die out with the sun going down, though.

Close enough. Had a 36mph gust with the onset of the storm. Really good lightning out of this one, too.

I'm late with my congratulations, since the topic has changed to storms, but I wish you all the best! I hope Mrs. Buckey loves to weather-watch too!

Spring storm season is giving you a nice show, it sounds like, so far. As long as it stays safe! We are looking ahead to a week of gentle, warm sunshine and that sounds really nice. Last week was rainier and much more unsettled. Everyone is anxious for summer!
