As a push of cooler, less humid air approaches northern Ohio Thursday night, spotty heavy, gusty thunderstorms will form over the region.

While the storms will be hit-or-miss, a few communities can be hit hard with damaging wind gusts and flash flooding.

The storms have the potential to cause travel delays and sporadic power outages along the I-71, I-77 and I-90 corridors.

The risk of severe weather and poor air quality will diminish by Friday as the cooler, less humid air begins to filter in from Canada.

During next week, warmth and humidity will return to the region. However, there is also the chance of additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms.
