Bluffton, Indiana, was nicknamed “The Parlor City” over a century ago because its paved streets (a new phenomenon at the time) made the city “as clean as your parlor."
Northwestern Ohio will be in an active severe weather pattern late today through the weekend, according to AEP.
The combination of unstable air, a stalled front, and several upper-level disturbances moving along the front will result in the severe storms. Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon over Illinois. These storms may develop into a complex of severe storms - or even a squall line with widespread damaging winds - as they track across Indiana & Ohio this evening into tonight.
On Saturday...more strong or severe thunderstorms are a possibility over
the same region.
