The honest answer: nothing is "for sure" just yet. That said... we are *not* going to get a hurricane. Also, we are *not* going to get 10, 20, 30 inches of rainfall. No need to worry about that!
However, it's possible the Southern part of our state picks up a few inches of rainfall.
Various computer forecast models are indicating that the leftovers will be centered just South of Ohio by Friday night into Saturday.
This will likely bring some bands of heavy rain to the Southern part of the Buckeye State. The strength of those bands is still highly in question.
Further North, into Northeast Ohio, we'll likely wind up with thick clouds from Harvey as soon as Friday. Those clouds may linger through Saturday. It's possible we see a little rain during that time as well. Amounts may be light-perhaps only an inch at best, if we see anything at all.
Overall, the consensus--for now--is for Harvey to head more toward Virginia and Washington DC, as opposed to Cleveland. However, Harvey has been squirrelly at times. It's not out of the question the storm jogs a little more North. If so, portions of Northeast Ohio could pick up some decent rain from this post-tropical system.
As always, our Power of 5 weather team will be tracking this system and giving you updates. Look for fresh forecasts online and on air as we get closer to the holiday weekend.
