The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK has placed the Miami Valley under a slight risk (2/5) for severe weather. This means any thunderstorms we see tonight could become severe.
Showers and storms will move in from the north tonight around 11 PM or 12 midnight. The showers and storms will continue to move south throughout the morning. Rain and possible storms will continue through your morning commute on Friday before tapering off in the early afternoon.
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.
