After a great stretch of sunny weather for the last few days the chance for storms will once again return to the Northcoast tomorrow. Northern Ohio has the chance for strong to severe storms mainly during the afternoon and evening hours.
A warm front will swing to the northeast of Ohio by Sunday morning allowing moisture and warmer temperatures to flow in. A few showers could pop up along this front and into the lunch hour. The atmosphere will not have enough fuel (instability) for any stronger thunderstorms, but a rumble of thunder is possible early. Any rain showers or thunderstorms should be mainly isolated until the afternoon.
The main severe weather risk looks to be from mid afternoon through about 8pm. A line of storms will likely develop ahead of a cold front. Off and on sunshine and temperatures pushing into the low 80s will help energize the atmosphere with the incoming front creating lift for clouds to grow and turn into storms.
By late afternoon or early evening storms should become scattered to widespread. Most of northern Ohio will at least see some rain, but some of us will stand the chance for strong to severe storms from Toledo to Findlay east to Cleveland, Akron and Youngstown. The storms will generally move from northwest to southeast between 3pm-9pm.
Damaging winds and large hail are both possible with the stronger storms. A weak tornado is NOT likely, but there is a chance for one. If one occurs it would likely be short-lived. Heavy rain is likely as these storms sag southward. They will likely start to diminish after sunset meaning the severe weather threat should stay from RT-30 and mainly north.
