The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 151
SUMMARY...Scattered thunderstorms, a few severe, will continue
across the southeastern half of WW151 this evening.
DISCUSSION...Considerable convective overturning has occurred across
much of the OH Valley this evening. In the absence of significant
buoyancy, stronger low-level forcing along the cold front should
serve as the primary focus for most organized thunderstorms over the
next few hours. With onset of diurnal cooling it appears the
greatest risk will be marginally severe hail and locally gusty
Just south of the watch over southern IN, a small cluster of
strong/severe thunderstorms has developed. This activity has
evolved within slightly more unstable air mass where influence from
earlier convection was less disruptive. Even so, marginally severe
hail and gusty winds should be the primary threats as this
convection spreads toward southwest OH.
