CLEVELAND — Hot, humid and unsettled today with thunderstorms in the forecast. Plan on upper 80s by noon before the storms start building.

Heat index in the lower 90s likely. That's all fuel for strong storms.


The biggest threat is heavy rain and frequent lightning. Flooding and power outages. Some of the strongest storms will have gusts over 60 mph and large hail.


We'll keep a close eye on them as they build this afternoon. Storms fade overnight with more rain Thursday.
