Threat of showers, storms tonight


After a dry and warm start to the week, the threat for storms returns to the Miami Valley.

The Storm Prediction Center has said the main threat is for damaging wind gusts up to 70 mph with isolated hail up to 1.5 inches in diameter. The next round of storms is expected to arrive around 8 p.m., Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.

Your Storm Center 7 team still agrees that an isolated severe storm or two will be possible as we head towards early evening. 

We will likely see storms first fire north of Interstate 70 then push southeast through the evening.

The greatest threat from these storms will be from strong winds and large hail, along with locally heavy rain and lightning. Driving in the evening hours may become problematic with the threat for severe storms and heavy downpours reducing visibility and creating ponding on the roads.
