Severe Thunderstorms & Tornadoes

Posted by   + Show Post

 Despite currently sunny skies with only patchy cloud cover, there is a 70% chance of thunderstorms this evening in NE Ohio. The possibility of severe thunderstorms and even a tornado were discussed in the weather report for today. The Weather Channel has given us (NE Ohio) a 3 on the TOR:CON index, meaning there is a 30% chance a tornado will develop within 50 miles. Due to my morbid fascination with tornadoes, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of these storms.

It is currently 81 degrees and partly cloudy in Warren, Ohio.

What is the weather like where you live? Do you like thunderstorms?

We are sunny and warm today, south centralish Missouri. I love thunderstorms but no tornados! My husband went chasing one when I was in college. He didn't know a Ranger can do 60 in reverse. Yea him and his buddy about had one come down on them.

There was thunder that was loud enough that I could hear it inside work around 8pm and it was pouring when I got off at 9 but it slowed down and didn't do anything else once I got home :/

Quoting radioheid:

 We didn't get squat last night. Just a little rain.

Quoting WesAndNicksMom:

I love torcon!!! I'm super excited about storms here in central Ohio tonight and I'm hoping it's better than the pathetic storms we had last night!

We've had our share of rough weather.  I think that same system went through here a day or so ago.  There was LOTS of lightning and some wind, though not much threat of a tornado.  Lots of thougts and prayers.  The weather is scary business sometimes.

About 70 and sunny of and on, mostly not sunny though, which is usual here in PA where I'm at.  We have 50% chance of getting severe thunderstorms tonight.

We had it last night. We were supposed to have more today, but sounds like we won't. Good luck!!! 

I don't mind thunderstorms. Unless they get nasty!

That's our monsoon season. I love it. Everyday we get awesome thunderstorms. I think I remember you telling me about that trip. It was shortly after we moved to AZ.

Quoting radioheid:

 The most awesome lightning I have ever seen in my life occurred 2 summers ago as we were driving through New Mexico and Arizona toward California.

Quoting hautemama83:

Hot and sunny as usual here in AZ. I do love thunderstorms though.
