Storm Team 2: Severe storm threat likely over

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Storm Team 2 is tracking the threat for storms Tuesday evening.

Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis says our risk for severe storms is low, but any isolated storm could become severe, much like the storms we saw Monday.

“Even though anything severe should be an isolated event, it could still be a significant event,” said Davis.  “Storms will be widely scattered, but heavy rain could pose a flooding threat, especially since the ground is already saturated.”  Anything severe should be gone by midnight.

The National Weather Service reports a tornado in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Authorities say at least three homes suffered damage.

About 1,700 Dayton Power & Light customers in Montgomery County remain without power Tuesday night following Monday evening’s storms, at the same time residents cleaned up damage and downed trees.  At one Dayton home, a woman watched as a tree fell on top of her car in the 1700 block of Suman Avenue.  Luckily, no one was hurt.

“I expect more coverage across the area today than the storms that rushed through Monday,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik. “Heavy rain could be falling by late afternoon.”

We can expect heavy rain and flash flooding is a possibility.  Thunderstorm warnings are also not out of the question.

Monday’s storms rushed through around 6:00 p.m. knocking down trees along the way. Most of the heavy rain fell south of Dayton. Springboro picked up two inches in a short amount of time.

About 11,000 Dayton Power and Light customers were without power at the height of the storm.
