Models indicate a large thunderstorm complex will likely develop across the Great Lakes overnight, and track southeastward across northeastern Ohio late tonight through Wednesday morning. After a brief break in the activity mid day Wednesday, additional storms are possible later Wednesday afternoon and evening as a cold front approaches from the northwest. Storms on Wednesday will have the potential to become severe.

The activity will gradually shift to our east Wednesday night following the passage of the cold front. Skies will be partly sunny on Thursday and it will be a bit cooler.

Here is the forecast: For today, it will be partly cloudy with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm. Highs will be in the low 70s. Winds S 5-10 mph.
