CLEVELAND — It’s going to be a very rainy day throughout Northeast Ohio, which is why the National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a Flash Flood Watch for multiple counties from 8 a.m. Friday through 8 a.m. Saturday.
“We’re looking at a very busy weather day because of rain,” says 3News’ morning meteorologist Hollie Strano.
The National Weather Service says the Flash Flood Watch is the result of “repeated rounds of showers and thunderstorms with torrential rainfall” expected along a “nearly-stationary front.”
“We’re expecting anywhere from 1-3 inches of rain,” Strano says. “So, that’s pretty impressive.”
