CLEVELAND — The last round of potentially severe storms, at least for a few days, will arrive this afternoon ahead of a strong cold front. The timing for these storms is between noon and 4 p.m.

Watches, Warnings and Advisories

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for multiple counties in Northeast Ohio.

Richland, Ashland, Wayne, and Holmes counties are under the warning until 1 p.m.

Lake, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Ashtabula, Stark and Trumbull counties are under a warning until 2:00 p.m.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for Tuscarawas, Carroll, Lake, Stark, Geauga, Ashtabula, Holmes, Trumbull, Summit, Portage and Wayne counties until 8 p.m.

A Flood Advisory has been issued for Ashtabula County until 6:15 p.m. Heavy rain due to thunderstorms could cause minor flooding.

Updates from the News 5 Weather team

Storms are forming near Marion, Shelby and Norwalk, so they will likely be near Cleveland around noon, tracking southeast through the rest of the area by 4 p.m.


There's a low marginal severe threat for Cleveland, but a higher Category 2 slight risk for parts of Akron and Canton.

The main threat will be a few damaging wind gusts near 60 mph or higher. A brief tornado and large hail can't be ruled out.


These storms should fade during the evening drive with only a few lingering showers this evening.

Get ready for a cool down. Highs Tuesday, on the heels of today's cold front, will be in the mid-60s! It's a brief break from summer though, as 80s will be coming right back late in the week.
