Areas affected...southwest through south central Ohio

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 281949Z - 282145Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent

SUMMARY...A few instances of convectively enhanced thunderstorm
gusts near severe levels are possible through early evening. Threat
is very marginal, and a watch is not anticipated.

DISCUSSION...As of mid afternoon a broken band of shallow convection
with sparse lightning is developing over northwest OH along an
eastward-advancing cold front and in association with ascent
accompanying a progressive shortwave trough. Strongest surface-layer
destabilization is occurring south of this activity across southwest
OH where temperatures have warmed to 55-60 F which, along with
steepening lapse rates, are contributing to 200-400 J/kg MLCAPE. As
the zone of ascent continues east-southeast, additional convection
may develop farther south along the front within corridor of greater
instability and where stronger winds in the 1-2 km layer reside.
Tendency has been for the winds to veer just ahead of the front,
limiting convergence along this boundary. This in addition to
limited low-level moisture and instability suggest updrafts will
remain weak/shallow. Nevertheless, downward mixing of stronger winds
aloft may contribute to occasional gusts near 40 kt outside of
convection with a few gusts approaching severe levels possible with
any sustained line/bowing segment through early evening.
