We have certainly been spoiled with the great weather the past several days across the Lower Great Lakes and Midwest. Warm temperatures, and plenty of sunshine have been the main weather features. However, that will change. This will be especially true headed towards the end of the work week. The Storm Prediction Center has identified the lower Great Lakes and Ohio River Valley for a risk of severe thunderstorms Friday and Friday Night.

The Canadian, European, and GFS morning model runs from today indicate that a strong storm center will develop by midweek in the Central Plains. Movement of the storm center into the lower Great Lakes will be placing parts of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky in a severe weather risk. The main risk at this time looks to be from damaging straight line winds. However, an isolated tornado or two can not be ruled out. We will be fine tuning the details as this particular event gets closer.
