Tracking a strong cold front, severe threat but mainly wind and cold, so Weather Aware Thursday


WEATHER AWARE Thursday 1 AM-Noon: There will be a very low end or “Marginal Risk” 1 out of 5 for severe thunderstorms for damaging wind and an isolated tornado. Expect a few lulls during this time but there will be an overnight wave all south of Columbus where the Marginal Risk is likely. This occurs before sunrise.

After 8 AM until noon the physical front enters with strong winds and another threat for isolated strong storms. Heavy rainfall and wind, with rainfall totals ranging from .5” to 1”. The surface winds will increase just ahead of the front and behind the front, with winds sustained 15-25mph and gusts up to 35mph.  

Expect weakened trees to snap and topple over easily, with these sustained winds, which will continue throughout the day Friday and taper off to breezy conditions on Saturday.

The air will be the coolest this season and not so much overnight low readings but the upper low and backside to this storm will keep more clouds around and sporadic light showers for most of the day Friday and holding daytime high readings into the upper 50s to near 60…Chilly Halloween weekend but Sunday will be fantastic!
