CLEVELAND — Storms are fading this morning, but more heat and intense humidity are fueling another round of afternoon storms.

Power of 5 meteorologist Remeisha Shade gave an update on what to expect the rest of the day. Watch it in the media player below:

The afternoon round will start around 3 p.m. Winds in excess of 30 mph are expected.

Once the storms pass through our area, temperatures will skyrocket, reaching back up to the mid-90s. This afternoon's storms may cut the daytime heat short, though. Plan on storms building 2-4 p.m. and getting out of here around 6-8 p.m.


Warnings and Advisories

A Flood Advisory has been issued for Erie, Huron and Richland counties until 3:00 p.m.

Between one to three inches of rain have fallen in these areas.

If you encounter flooded roads, the NWS is advising "you to turn around, don’t drown. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles."
