Good morning, Cleveland. The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for portions of greater Cleveland and northeastern Ohio until 1 pm, this afternoon. We are seeing a line of severe thunderstorms rolling off Lake Erie at this hour. These storms are producing heavy downpours, quarter size hail and winds in excess of 60 miles per hour.
We do expect the storms to roll on out of Cleveland by the 1 p.m. hour. We do expect mostly sunny skies to take control of the weather. Greater Cleveland can also expect some very hot, humid, and hazy skies with temperatures soaring up into the upper 90s. Heat index will approach 100 degrees plus. The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a heat advisory for all the counties in northeastern Ohio with the exception of Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula.
This evening and overnight, greater Cleveland can expect another round of storms to our west. We are advising everyone to keep an eye on the weather with your NOAA weather radio, your cell phone, or listening to your local weather outlet on the radio or television. Our low temperatures will tumble down into the lower 70s.
Friday, greater Cleveland can expect one of the hottest days of the year. An upper-level ridge of high pressure will sit directly over our region. This will allow another day of hazy, hot, and humid conditions to persist. Our high temperatures will climb into the upper 90s with a few spots in the lower 100s. Heat index values will approach 105 to 108 degrees. I expect the National Weather Service to issue a heat advisory for the day.
The weekend for greater Cleveland, we can expect a cold front to cross over our region on Saturday. We can expect another round of showers and thunderstorms to invade our forecast. Saturday’s temperatures will be in the upper 80s.
Sunday, greater Cleveland will cool off behind the frontal boundary to more comfortable conditions with plenty of sunshine. Our high temperatures will only be in the lower 80s.
Next week for greater Cleveland is looking fantastic. We can expect plenty of sunshine and comfortable conditions. Our high temperatures through Wednesday will only be in the lower 80s.
Have a wonderful, Thursday, Cleveland. Keep a close eye on the weather.
