And the Storm Watch continues...

So it's been about a week since I updated, as Brandon so cutely pointed out in his comment on the post below. lol. My parents made it there fine, and now are on their way back, and staying at my Aunt Gloria's for the next night or two.

Aunt Gloria lives in Cleveland.

TWC came out with Friday's Tor:Con probability chart today. Here it is...

Yes, that's a 7 out of 10 (ten being the highest) for Northern Ohio.
I swear these storms follow my parents around.
Here is how TWC lists it's number probability charts, fyi:

10: Near 100% chance of a tornado within 50 miles (we'll call that "area")
8: High probability of a tornado in area
6: Moderate probability of a tornado in area
4: Low probability of a tornado in an area; hail and high winds in t-storms likely
2: Unlikely to have a tornado, but hail and high winds in t-storms possible
0: Near-zero chance of a tornado or severe t-storms in area.

So my parents risk in this area is somewhere between Modeate and High. I will keep my watch up tomorrow, and fill you in as more becomes known tomorrow. This looks like a highly explosive weather scenario for the Ohio Valley, and let's hope it is not half as bad as Dr. Greg Forbes seems to think it will be - as he was saying earlier today that the possibility of not only tornadoes, but perhaps a LARGE tornado to touch down in the Ohio Valley is high. Details to follow.

I didn't know if anyone still listened to folk music at all. It was a old reference glad you got it.
