The WNWO Weather Center is on alert as we head into late Sunday afternoon and into the early evening.
A Tornado Watch is in effect for areas west of I-75 in NW Ohio and SE Michigan until 8pm EST. (Watch specifics here)
The remainder of Northern Ohio is under at Tornado Watch until Midnight EST. (Watch specifics here)
A line of thunderstorms approaching from Indiana will at the very least contain strong gusty winds...potentially to 70mph or higher.
An additional threat for tornados does exist.
The storms will be moving at a very rapid pace...so if warnings are issued for your location, take them seriously...and do not wait to seek shelter.
The additional component of darkness will complicate matters as we get later in the day.
Have your shelter plan ready well before these storms enter your area.
As always, the WNWO Weather Team will be updating the situation on Facebook, Twitter and on-air as the situation develops.
