CLEVELAND — A strong line of storms developing in the west will affect portions of Northeast Ohio, specifically Cuyahoga and Lake counties Friday evening.

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Tuscarawas County effective until 5 p.m. Friday.

Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were previously issued for Huron, Erie and Sandusky counties but have since expired.

Power of 5 meteorologist Remeisha Shade gives an update on weather. Watch it in the media player below:

There’s a risk of flooding with these storms, which have the potential to become severe as the evening progresses.

Thunderstorms will have high rainfall rates, leading to flash flooding and localized amounts of 2 to 3 inches of rain for some areas.

The main threats will be very heavy rain that could lead to flooding and damaging winds over 60 mph.

Make sure you're staying safe: When you hear thunder, it's time to head inside.

Another round of storms likely Saturday morning/early afternoon. Plan on more heavy rain.
