CLEVELAND — Rain from the remnants of Fred is moving northward out of Northeast Ohio Wednesday afternoon. A few more hit-or-miss showers and isolated storms are possible this afternoon.


3 PM UPDATE: Flash Flood Watch for Mahoning, Trumbull [OH] has been canceled

Widespread showers will move to the northeast out of Ohio. Wrap-around moisture could provide a few more showers and isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. Most of the showers and storms will fade away by this evening and tonight, but a few isolated lingering showers cannot be ruled out, especially in our most northeastern communities.

Active weather will continue even after today with isolated to scattered showers and storms in the forecast through the weekend. The next disturbance will move across the Great Lakes on Thursday and will bring a few storms. Widely scattered to isolated storm will linger through the weekend. The best chance for showers and storms will be during the afternoons and evenings. This is the warmest part of the day and when the atmosphere tends to be most unstable.
