MONDAY (7/18) MORNING WEATHER BRIEFING

ROCKING START TO THE WEEK!

Well this morning’s storms have come and gone and they meant some business. Flash flooding occurred around Youngstown thanks to a quick 1.5″-1.75″ of rain. Other unofficial rain totals (some are obviously a bit off)

Spotty power outages remained at 8:50am:

What about the rest of the day??? We have been advertising a chance for strong/severe storms in the afternoon but it looks like that threat is lowering quickly. Hi-res modeling shows little or nothing this afternoon and evening:

We can’t rule out a feisty storm this afternoon but the chances appear to be quite low. Staying quite muggy today.

NICE MIDWEEK

Dewpoints will lower considerably Tuesday into Wednesday. A couple of nice, comfortable days with some sunshine.

HOTTEST IN 4 YEARS?

The heat that we have been talking about for a while now is still on track to arrive late this week and weekend. We have not seen a temperature above 91 at the Youngstown-Warren airport since 2012. I think 92-94 is reachable Friday and Saturday. Heat Index values in the upper 90s.
