This basically means that there is a better potential for strong to severe thunderstorms in our area – mainly late this afternoon and this evening. The main threats will come from damaging wind gusts and hail. The threat for an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out:
- Damaging Wind: 15%
- Large Hail: 15%
- Tornadoes: 2%
A Severe Thunderstorm WATCH is expected for portions of eastern Ohio this afternoon.
