CLEVELAND — Remnants of Beryl will impact NE Ohio tonight and Wednesday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible tonight as a warm front slides north to Lake Erie by sunrise. With the loss of sunlight, the severe threat is diminishing across our area. Still, there is a small risk for a couple of rotating thunderstorms, which could produce a brief, damaging wind gust and an isolated, weak tornado. Stay alert tonight for any warnings! Lows will drop into the upper 60s and lower 70s by sunrise.

The small severe storm threat will continue on Wednesday until a cold front crosses the state by early afternoon. Again, any isolated storm on Wednesday could produce brief damaging winds or a weak, isolated tornado. Behind the front, a few showers will continue to slide in from the northwest by late afternoon and evening and continue into early Thursday morning. The remnant low pressure that was Hurricane Beryl will slide northeast across the Toledo area by early afternoon. It will bring gusty winds to the entire state for the day. Winds will gust between 20 and 35 miles per hour through the evening hours. Highs on Wednesday will reach into the lower 80s.

We dry out on Thursday with a mix of clouds and sunshine. It will be breezy with highs in the upper 70s.

Friday stays warm and dry with highs in the middle 80's. The heat returns for the weekend, with hazy sunshine on Saturday & isolated storms on Sunday. Highs both days will climb into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.

What To Expect:

  • Isolated severe storms tonight
  • Small risk for a weak tornado tonight thru early PM Wednesday

  • Drying Thursday
