A severe thunderstorms watch is in effect for Northeast Ohio until 11am. We are seeing a few strong t-storms producing hard downpours, strong wind gusts, and some small sized hail. This threat will continue early this morning, and then severe storms will be a concern this afternoon as a cold front swings through into tonight. Expect it to dry out overnight, with the threat of a few isolated storms Friday. Then we'll look for the threat of more severe storms Saturday before drying out Sunday.
