CLEVELAND — The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for southeastern Trumbull County and northeastern Mahoning County until 6:30 p.m.
At 6:02 p.m., a severe thunderstorm was located over Hubbard, moving southeast at 20 miles per hour. Affected areas could see 60 mile per hour wind gusts and quarter size hail. Minor damage to vehicles is possible, along with damage to trees and power lines.
Locations impacted include Youngstown, Boardman, Niles, Campbell, Hubbard, Vienna Center, Hilltop, Maplewood Park, Austintown, Struthers, Girard, Vienna, McDonald, Poland, Lowellville, Orangeville, Yankee Lake, Brookfield Center, Churchill and West Hill.
According to the 3News weather team, a cold front will sweep south across the lake tonight bringing a wind shift and a briefly cooler, less humid pattern to NE Ohio! We'll see a few storms around mainly early, otherwise clouds will begin to break for some sun Wednesday with highs only making it into the low to mid 70s.
This wind shift will also begin to clear out some of the atmospheric smoke which has been laying on thick over the last 24 hours. Look at the coverage of smoke, not just in NE Ohio, but all around the eastern US. This is the reason we've had that milky white look to the sky and that vivid red sun at dusk and dawn.
The brief relief from the humidity won't last as we'll be back to the warmth and humidity over the next 5-10 days with some potential HEAT next week.
