More heavy rain, strong storms possible across northeastern Ohio

More heavy rain, strong storms possible across northeastern Ohio, Heavy rain and strong storms pummeled the area last night with numerous reports of wind damage and a few reports of large hail.

Winds gusted well over 60 mph in some areas causing damage to trees and powerlines. Even a few structure were damaged, including the Stark County Board of Elections in Canton.

Conditions are much quieter this morning with just a few rain showers near the lake shore as the heavy rains have now lifted north of the area. There will be a few showers around through the morning along with some patchy fog.

A strong cold front will move into western Ohio late in the day. Ahead of this front, the atmosphere will become increasingly unstable.

Widespread rain and thunderstorms will spread west to east across the area this afternoon.

Very heavy rainfall is possible along with a few severe thunderstorms capable of producing strong winds and hail.

Temperatures today will vary greatly, ranging from the mid 40s near the lake shore, to the mid 70s along the Route 30 corridor.

The cold front will cross the area tonight with widespread showers and thunderstorms continuing.

Again, there will be a threat of heavy rainfall, especially in areas where thunderstorms repeat. Lows tonight will be in the low to mid 40s.

Showers will continue into Friday morning, then gradually taper off as the front moves to our east. It will be cooler with highs ranging from the mid 40s to the mid 50s.
