There is a slight risk for severe storms Tuesday afternoon across northern Ohio, according to the Power of 5 Weather Team.


A cold front will sag south across Northern Ohio today, meteorologist Mark Johnson said. Scattered storms are likely along this front. A few storms could contain damaging wind gusts, large hail, and perhaps an isolated tornado.


Storms will likely develop by mid-afternoon and shift east-southeast through the area. The storm threat should exist during the evening and then end as storms slide out of the area later in the evening. The storms should be moved out of the area by 7 p.m.


A few storms could contain quarter-sized hail, damaging winds close to 60 mph during late afternoon school dismissal time and the evening rush. A very small tornado threat exists.
