Friday Evening Storms

11 pm update:  all severe storms have pushed east of the area.  Another line of storms will approach from the west overnight.  They are weakening, but still will produce some gusty winds.

A severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect the rest of the evening.

A line of severe storms tracked from Illinois into Indiana between 6 and 7 p.m., and moved into western Ohio just after 8 p.m.  The storms will continue tracking across the rest of the area through around 11:30 p.m.

These storms have a history of producing damaging winds as well as some large hail, prompting severe thunderstorm warnings.

Remember that a watch means the conditions are favorable for severe weather to occur.  A warning means that severe weather is occurring in your county, and you should take cover immediately.
