WET WEDNESDAY

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.

Rainfall through 4 PM Wednesday

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.
