Lorain County under severe thunderstorm watch

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued through 8 p.m. for Lorain County and much of Ohio.

According to the National Weather Service, a flash flood watch is also in effect until 8.

Thunderstorms will continue across the area today and early this evening ahead of a cold front. There is a slight chance that some of these storms could become severe with damaging wind and hail.

Repeating storms are possible, making flooding possible, especially in areas that have already seen heavy rain over the past several days.

The National Weather Service recommends listening to NOAA Weather Radio for updates.
