A Few Strong To Severe Storms Possible

Good Tuesday to one and all. We are heading into a fairly active setup across the Ohio Valley as rounds of showers and storms target our part of the world. Some of those storms out there today could be on the strong side as this pattern begins to skew wetter than normal. Oh yeah… some cool shots of air also show up.

Let’s start with today’s thunderstorm potential.  A complex of strong to severe storms may roll in here from the northwest this afternoon and evening. The greatest risk for this is across the western and central parts of the state. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

The strongest storms may contain damaging winds and large hail. In addition to the severe threat, these storms will also put down a lot of rain and put on a pretty good light show.

A few more showers and storms will be noted on Wednesday as the front drops in from the northwest. That boundary then slows down right on top of us for Thursday and Friday, keeping showers and storms around. There’s even the chance some of that sticks around into the coming weekend as temps come way down.

The models are all on board with some good rain totals…

As we head into the final week of August and closer to the Labor Day Weekend, the models are still on board with a significant trough developing across the middle of the country and spreading east. Here’s that trough on the European Model for the second half of next week…

The Ensembles are also on this and keep it goring into Labor Day Weekend…
