  • Description:
    "The National Weather Service Forecast Office (WFO) in Wilmington, Ohio, has forecast and warning responsibilities for 52 counties across southwest Ohio, north-central Kentucky, and southeast Indiana (Fig. 1). Severe convective storms can occur at any time of the year in this area, although they are most frequent during the spring and summer. The motivation for producing a severe weather climatology for the Wilmington, Ohio, county warning area (CWA) is to provide forecasters with a historical baseline of the likelihood and type of severe weather on annual, seasonal, monthly and hourly scales. A severe weather climatology can supply forecasters with an extensive background in assessing the frequency and magnitude of different types of severe weather on temporal and spatial scales, and assist in anticipation of local severe weather. The period of the study extends from the early 1950s to 2004"--Introduction.
