CLEVELAND — After days of experiencing sunshine in Northeast Ohio, a round of storms Thursday afternoon will shake things up. Heavy rain, strong winds and frequent lightning are the main concerns.

A couple of storms from Youngstown to the Akron/Canton area to Wooster could produce damaging winds and heavy rains this afternoon.

The timing of these storms is from about 2 to 5 p.m. on Thursday. The rain should be out of Cleveland before the Tall Ships arrive.

Looking at next week, things are heating up. The first heat wave of the summer is coming to the News viewing area.

A heat wave for the Great Lakes is defined as three or more consecutive days above 90 degrees. The Power of 5 Weather team says residents could see lower and middle 90s beginning Monday or Tuesday of next week, lasting into Thursday or Friday.

It looks like we will welcome the Dog Days of Summer.
