   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0659 PM CDT Tue Apr 02 2024

   Areas affected...south-central Ohio

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 78...81...

   Valid 022359Z - 030100Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 78, 81 continues.

   SUMMARY...The greatest strong tornado threat in watch 78 and 81 will
   exist across south-central Ohio this evening.

   DISCUSSION...A long-track supercell has become better organized in
   the low-levels within the last hour near the Ohio River in
   south-central Ohio. Recently a TDS was apparent from the ILN WSR-88D
   in northern Kentucky with another TDS ongoing in Adams County, Ohio
   as of 2355 UTC. The environment ahead of this supercell remains
   favorable for tornadoes with STP around 2 and no storm interference
   anticipated. Therefore, this supercell will pose a continued tornado
   threat with the potential for strong tornadoes through the evening.
