The Storms of 5/25 and early 5/26/11
The first set of storms came early afternoon...somehow they split, and missed us in Mercer County....and frankly we were lucky throughout the rest of the evening and early morning hours.....although we certainly got our share of rain and winds, much less damaging stuff, like that that hit north towards Findlay, Ohio, and south in the Dayton Area, where Hal and wife Lisa got clobbered in Centerville...Hal's car received hail damage...but nothing like the stones that hit in the Bellbrook area a few miles east. Major hail stones nailed that town, and with the arrival of a second storm north and west of Dayton, in the Vandalia/Dayton Airport area, where some stones the size of 4.25" were found....it will be interesting to see how much damage was done to vehicles and buildings. It has to be something to behold.
Today's Forecast For West Central Ohio
Mostly Cloudy today, with more storms, although they don't appear to be as strong in nature...it will remain very humid.
90% Chance of Storms today with a High of 72
80% Chance of more storms tonight low near 52
and tomorrow the rains will begin to move out with a high only near 70 and 40% possible morning showers...
The weekend looks dryer and warming each day through Sunday...
Photo Descriptions-The Radar as it looked at around 10pm EDT last night..the first batch of storms to the right are beginning to leave west Ohio, while the second large front, was moving through central Indian...those would arrive here at about 12 Midnight....The Truck and large hail photos are from WHIO TV coverage of the Bellbrook storms, which did major damage to that town and surrounding area. The other views were taken by me at about 6pm last night as the action moved into Mercer County, but for the most part, the worst missed us north and south.
