Here is a look at the CAPE (Convective Available Potential Energy) in the atmosphere as we head into the overnight. CAPE values will approach 2000 to 3000 J/Kg. This means we will have some pretty good energy in the atmosphere for supporting thunderstorm development. As the line pushes southward throughout the overnight and morning you can see CAPE values dropping on the map. CAPE values will however rise again tomorrow.

Looking at our severe weather threats tonight. Hail and damaging winds look to be the biggest threats. Flooding can’t be ruled out tonight as well. Stay with The Greater Dayton Weather Post for updates.
