UPDATE: Heavy rains currently across SW Ohio, but they're not getting here any time soon. There is a chance at an isolated shower overnight, but most of us should stay dry.
UPDATE: Still keeping it dry for your evening. Any showers should be far to our SW. Warm and muggy with temps in the 70s.
UPDATE: We aren't see much in the way of heavy rains Sunday afternoon - but the atmosphere is juiced and humid. It won't take much for a shower or storm to pop up and bring heavy rains.

AFTERNOON UPDATE: All is quiet across Northeast Ohio this afternoon. A few showers are possible through evening. Any shower that develops has the potential to produce heavy rain because the air mass is saturated. Labor Day looks like the best chance of rain. The remnants of Isaac will interact with a stalled front over Ohio. A stronger front arrives Tuesday, keeping rain chances in the forecast. Right now, we do not expect severe weather, just heavy rain.
MORNING UPDATE: More of Isaac's rain expected today. Rain and thunderstorms could affect your outdoor plans for today. Computer forecasts now show most of the rain FADING this afternoon. That does bode well for the Geauga Co Fair, Tribe Game, Cedar Point, & the Air Show!!!! Don't cancel your outdoor plans today. Get out and enjoy. Areas along US 224 and US 30 stand the best chance for a heavier rain shower. Where thunderstorms form, an additional 1-2 inches of rainfall are possible by the end of this evening. Cloudy skies will dominate our weather picture today as well, with muggy high temperatures near 80 degrees.
Rain should subside a bit tonight, with only isolated thundershowers expected. Lows in the 60s. Another round of showers and thunderstorms is possible again on Monday. Most of the rain should stay south of Interstate 80. Highs will climb into the middle 80s. Have a Plan B for all of your outdoor activities just in case rain should invade your location.

Concern for heavy rain increasing for Labor Day. The threat for rain/thunderstorms is increasing for Monday and Monday night. Isaac's rains will combine with a stationary front to produce 1-2" of rain in this area by Tuesday afternoon. Some locally higher amounts might even measure 3 or 4 inches of rain including Saturday's rain. Mansfield, Ashland, Wooster, Canton, Dover, New Philly and Youngstown stand the best chance for today's rain. As we move into Monday, we all have a shot at a Labor Day Soak-Fest!
