The possibility of severe weather exists late this afternoon. Stay tuned to this site and WHIO-TV, Channel 7 for the latest on weather conditions as our team of meteorologists track the storm.

FIRST REPORT

After an active morning of thunderstorms which produced heavy rain, frequent lightning and possibly some small sized hail, the Miami Valley will need to gear up for another threat of strong storms. 

A boundary draped across the southern Miami Valley will help be a catalyst for storms to redevelop.

RELATED: Severe Weather: Slight vs Enhanced Risk

Some late morning and early afternoon sun will help to re-energize the atmosphere and with dew points in the 60s today, the warm and moist environment will help to fuel more storms. 

RELATED:  LIVE Interactive Radar

Areas along Interstate 70 and south have been placed under a "slight risk" for severe storms with areas north in a "marginal" risk. 

Your Storm Center 7 Teams believes the best ingredients will likely live under the counties in the slight risk. 

Storms should start firing between 1 and 3 p.m. and become scattered across the Miami Valley for the evening commute. 

Storms will likely be slow-movers which means the potential for heavy downpours repeatedly over the same city could cause ponding on the roads. 

The main severe threat will come from damaging winds and larger sized hail. 

If you are driving, or biking home since it is #BiketoWorkDay, make sure to check your WHIO Weather App. You can set up lightning detection, get any watches and warnings and check out the live stream of our latest newscasts. 

Your Storm Center 7 Team will monitor conditions through the day to bring you updates on-air, online and on AM 1290 and News 95.7 WHIO.
