Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 26...

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 26
SUMMARY...Strong/severe wind gusts are most likely in parts of
northern Ohio over the next couple of hours.
DISCUSSION...Strong mixing has lowered dewpoints across southern
Ohio to the low/mid 30s F. Farther north, a longer duration of cloud
cover has sheltered the area from mixing. Dewpoints in northern Ohio
have remained in the low/mid 40s F. Observational trends indicate
that the strongest portion of the frontal convection has been where
dewpoints are in the mid 40s F. Though forcing from the shortwave
trough will remain moderate/strong, it appears that the greatest
threat for strong/severe wind gusts will be confined to where these
greater dewpoints are in northern Ohio.
