The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK has placed the entire Miami Valley under a marginal risk (1/5) for severe weather. This means any thunderstorms we see today could become strong to possibly severe.

We will have showers and thunderstorms that will blossom this afternoon caused by the heating of the day that occurs in the afternoon. These showers and storms will be spotty/hit or miss. So not everyone will see you see showers and thunderstorms today. Again though, a few of these thunderstorms could be a little on the stronger side. The showers and thunderstorms will pop up around 1 o’clock this afternoon and continue past midnight tonight. Although as we head towards midnight the showers and thunderstorms will begin to diminish and the severity of the storms will be very low. However, looking forward to fireworks that some cities are putting on tonight. The rain and storms could put a damper on some of those firework shows.

Ok, let’s look at some of our severe weather threats for tonight with some of these storms. As of now the threat of a tornado and hail is low. Damaging winds will be our main threat tonight. Flooding is another thing we will have to watch out for as we get some of these pop up showers thunderstorms that move into the area. Some of them could be prolonged over certain areas at different times of the day. With that being said, some rain could be moderate to heavy at times as well. So again, flooding will be another thing we will have to watch out for.
