Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Conditions become more humid and unfavorable enough for at least a slight risk for a few storms become to severe late today. Scattered thunderstorms will become likely by afternoon and evening as a front approaches and stalls across the region this evening through Wednesday am. Some of these storms may be capable of large hail and damaging winds. The shear in the atmosphere is indicative of straight line winds however a few isolated super-cell thunderstorms may develop keeping the possibility of a tornado around this evening and tomorrow afternoon. Very heavy rainfall may accompany these storms with the possibility of 1 to 2 inches of rainfall in some isolated locations where storms train. Humidity drops Wednesday afternoon as the front clears the region brining the return to sunshine and low humidity through Friday.
By the weekend the return of more humid and warmer air will be felt meaning once again storms return by late weekend.
