Hello, forecast friends! We’re headed off to northeast Ohio, and the home of the Rubber Bowl and at least one very good basketball player and influential humanitarian. Akron, Ohio, let’s go!
AT 251PM, ET, Akron was reporting mostly cloudy skies and a sultry 86 degrees. A cold front sliding through the Great Lakes hasn’t quite become active, but will soon, with severe weather expected this afternoon in the Detroit and Toledo areas. Storms won’t reach Akron tonight, but the southerly flow leading into the boundary will continue to saturate the atmosphere in northeastern Ohio this afternoon
Storms will move into Akron overnight, and will linger into the morning tomorrow, leading to what projects to be a cool, stormy day. The low associated with this boundary will drfit further north, limiting the cold air and momentum of the front. Storm activity will weaken, but will not advance through eastern Ohio. At the base of the upper level trough, a vorticity maximum will develop late tomorrow in central Illinois. It will follow the jet streak towards Ohio, and will reinvigorate thunderstorm activity for Wednesday. Showers and storms will be persistent, though severe weather isn’t going to be widespread.

The internet went out here yesterday, so I couldn’t post in a timely manne, but I pulled these forecasts from the mobile site, and grabbed an archived satellite image. I am dedicated. Here is the line of storms firing over the Great Lakes.
