With heat and humidity locked in over Northeast Ohio, our tropical weather conditions also means more chances for thunderstorms throughout the work week.

“It’s going to be one of those days where it feels like it could rain at any moment – and that’s pretty much how it’s going to go," says 3News meteorologist Hollie Strano.

We had some strong thunderstorms before sunrise today in portions of Northeast Ohio with lots of lightning and heavy rain. Around noon, we saw severe thunderstorm warnings in both Stark and Tuscarawas counties.

It's a pattern we're tracking through Friday as a boundary shifts south, which will bring cooler, drier air back into the Great Lakes region.
