DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A line of severe thunderstorms are moving through the Miami Valley, triggering tornado warnings and other watches and warnings along the way.
The tornado warnings for all areas are now canceled. A Flash Flood Watch for all of the Miami Valley is in effect until 4:00 a.m. Friday. Wayne County, Indiana and Butler County are under a Tornado Watch. Wayne County issued a Level 1 Travel Advisory due to high water on several roadways. Most of the Miami Valley is now under a watch or warning:
The storms should be through the immediate area around midnight. “Any time winds are that strong, the chance for trees to topple and limbs to fall is probable,” said Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis. “Power outages are also always a possibility.”
“Winds were recorded between 50 and 70 mph in the Indianaoplis area with power outages and roof damage,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Tara Hastings.
Davis says Friday weather will be more what we expect this time of year. The sun returns, but it will be chilly with highs around 42 degrees.
Much colder air is expected to return next week with highs in the 20s, and lows in the teens, and possibly even single digits by week’s end.
