   Mesoscale Discussion 0079
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0239 PM CST Thu Jan 19 2023

   Areas affected...Northwestern/north-central Ohio

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 26...

   Valid 192039Z - 192215Z

   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.
