WHEN: 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday

WHERE: While a severe storm is possible anywhere mid to late afternoon, the best chance for a severe storm Tuesday into the evening hours is from Youngstown west to Akron/Canton, Medina & Wooster.

IMPACTS: Storms will likely be ongoing this evening – tune in to News 5 at 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. for the latest updates.
