Tornado watch update, big cool off coming
Humidity is high and more rain is headed our way later this evening. Dew points surge to low 70s – meaning plenty of moisture to produce locally heavy rainfall. NWS expands Flash flood watch but I feel this will be more of a localized flood event if it is to develop, plan for some tropical downpours. Stay tuned.
Batch of early rain (1.76″ Marion Grant Co) is lifting NE after a few isolated potential winds gusts per radar prompted t-storm warnings. A tornado watch was issued until 9 PM for the potential of a few brief, spin-ups as strong winds blow but the set up for this is shifting east into Ohio.
NEW WATCHES ISSUED
A developing new line of storm forms NW along strong cold front. New storms are due in later this evening from 8 PM to 12 AM and a few could be strong to severe. The NWS has expanded the tornado watch and added a severe t-storms watch to account for this line dropping south.
BIG COOL OFF
October-like air is headed this way. A real cool down is coming with lows still forecast to dip to mid-October levels for the weekend.
