Severe Storms Tonight
Cold Start Easter Weekend
A squall line of intense thunderstorms, some severe with damaging winds and a tornado, will press across the region tonight from west to east. Precautionary plans should already be in place, such as knowing where to go in a tornado warning and outdoor lawn furniture being secured. The worst of this squall line will exit to the east of Columbus before daybreak, and eventually push past I-75 later in the morning. WLTZ First Weather will have round-the-clock coverage of this severe weather outbreak.
Hit/miss showers and a thundershower can redevelop on the backside of our exiting storm system for Friday afternoon. However, a cooler gusty wind will also take shape.
Saturday will remain windy with times of clouds and sun; even the chance of a brief afternoon shower.
Easter Sunday starts chilly, but the afternoon will be quite nice.
The next threat to get wet will come with a shower and thunderstorm later next week. Stay tuned.
