-Storms developed around our area last night with a cold front that dropped through Central Ohio. Most storms pulsed and died out quickly, but a couple cells developed and then redeveloped and trained over the same areas for hours. Yesterday evening a Flood Emergency was issued for Ashville, an area I used to live. In fact, radar estimated almost 5" of rain fell in a couple parts of the county:
My house is probably 10 miles from where the heaviest r...

Fall usually shows up right around the middle of September here in Central Ohio. With very few exceptions, you'll suddenly start seeing highs in the low 70s to 60s, and our overnight lows in the 40s starting on the 15th of the month and really setting in by the end of the month.
Well, this September may be one of those exceptions.
The eastern ridge is building in and shows no signs up letting up. Even brief cold fronts aren't bringing massive ...

I'm back from a short summer hiatus from weather blogging. Why did I take a break? Well, it wasn't really a planned silence, but more dictated from the lack of interesting weather.

Now it's Septe...

Well, the well advertised derecho never really developed. As storms moved in after midnight, more convection fired in a line from Columbus back to Lima. I think this really took any wind power out of a long lived derecho. However, this wasn't a total bust. There was a ton of lightning, and plenty of rain. I got 2.10" here in Canal Winchester, with TheHermit reporting 2" in Lancaster.
These storms that developed trained for quite a while over an area from ...

This is going to be a long day. And a dangerous one. The SPC has us in a Moderate Risk for severe weather for the first time in recent memory:
There's an area of storms pretty much all over the Moderate Risk area early this morning, but that's not what we need to be worried about. Our concern should be shifted to this evening and in the overnight. I'll be updating this post all day with more information as we prepare for our most active ...
