Good morning, Cleveland. We had some severe thunderstorms and high winds throughout the southern parts of northeastern Ohio, last evening. Thousands of residences are still without power, this morning, and fierce outflow winds cause tractor-trailers to blow off the interstate.
The National Weather Services in Cleveland, Wilmington, and Pittsburgh confirmed that the bow line derecho that moved through the buckeye state packed large hail and strong winds of over 70 miles per hour.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says high winds blew over many tractor-trailers on Interstate 75 near Findlay, where no one was hurt.
Powerful storms blew through Tuscarawas County near Dover-New Philadelphia as the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh issued a tornado warning for parts of the county, last evening. New Philadelphia police reported that most residences lost power and streetlights were out at 7:30 pm, last evening.
The Newcomerstown Fire Department reported trees were knocked down all over Grove Street in the village.

This morning, greater Cleveland is starting out with clear and starlit skies with our temperatures in the lower 70s, region wide.
By lunchtime, we expect plenty of sunshine and hazy conditions as temperatures will rise up to the middle to upper 80s.
The forecast high for greater Cleveland is 92 degrees under the same hot and humid conditions that has been around for the last couple days. We do have a chance for some afternoon to evening thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center out of Norman, Oklahoma has placed greater Cleveland under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms with the exception of the counties of Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula counties. I do expect the same weather setup as we experienced, last evening, with powerful straight line winds, large hail, and a possible isolated tornado or two. I advise everyone to stay in touch with NOAA weather radio and/or your local television weather media outlet.
Overnight, greater Cleveland will have mostly cloudy skies, early, with showers and severe thunderstorms likely. After midnight, expect our skies to become partly cloudy. Our overnight low temperatures will drop into the upper 60s.
Sunday, greater Cleveland will have partly cloudy skies with some slightly cooler temperatures. Our daytime high will approach the middle 80s. Overnight low temperatures should fall back into the upper 60s.
Monday, greater Cleveland can expect the temperatures to warm back up into the lower 90s with partly sunny skies around. There will be an isolated chance of showers and perhaps a few strong to severe thunderstorms as the second shortwave trough moves through the region.
Tuesday, greater Cleveland will bask in more sunshine and the same conditions with the temperatures. Our high temperatures will remain in the lower 90s.
Wednesday, greater Cleveland will have another shortwave trough move through the region in the afternoon. The forecast is calling for partly sunny skies with an isolated chance of showers and thunderstorms. Our high temperatures will stay in the lower 90s.
Much of the same weather pattern will continue through the latter part of the week with a mixture of clouds and sunshine. Our high t temperatures will be in the lower 90s.
Have a wonderful, Saturday, Cleveland. If threatening weather conditions move into your local area, make sure to have your NOAA weather radio handy and keep in touch with the latest weather conditions. God Bless.
