FORECAST: More weekend heat, humidity and flooding downpours

Posted at 5:39 AM, Aug 05, 2022

CLEVELAND — A "soupy" weather weekend is in store for you across Northern Ohio. That means heat and humidity will keep the air thick. Plus, it will help fuel more random thunderstorms tonight into Saturday and Sunday. These storms are called "Pulse" storms...they will form on any random breeze or outflow boundary, then pulse quickly into a thunderstorm with heavy rains and then fade just as quickly to nothing. Again, any storm this weekend could produce heavy rainfall of 1" or more in a hurry!

Lows tonight will only drop down to near 70 degrees with a little patchy fog here and there. Plus the threat is there for a random storm tonight.

Isolated to widely scattered storms are possible Saturday & Sunday highs thru Sunday in the middle and upper 80s.

Make sure you're staying up to date on the forecast as you make your plans.

What To Expect:

  • Isolated storms tonight
  • Heavy rain threat continues
  • Very warm & muggy Saturday/Sunday
  • isolated weekend storms are possible too
  • Storms could cause some brief flash flooding
