The short is well to the north and is weakening as outlined previously. In spite of our heat and humidity, we had a cap on our atmosphere during the day. It will be difficult to break the cap though late Friday night and Saturday morning but a front approaches and that may help keep some storms going as the cap weakens. I would think that any strong storms in our area would be isolated in nature. The SPC has the risk area like it was before but as of 3:30 pm I haven’t even seen any storm reports from the northwest. As previously stated the risk area for today and tonight is most likely out of precaution…kinda a CYA. While the severe threat overnight around here is remote, we’ll continue to monitor. As I said, when the boundary sags through…perhaps some late night/early morning t’storms. Maybe some gusty winds. Not totally out of the question for a warning or two but they would be the exception, not the rule. Saturday the boundary sags through and the focus of storms should be to our south.
Sure, you see some qualifiers in there but consider this when considering your own plans this evening….Snow White is going to Cincinnati with her son to see the Reds game. That should tell you what I think.
The above is the SPC maps. Here are the accompanying links with the discussions for each.
