CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The 19 First Alert Weather Team has issued ALERT days for Thursday and Friday for the potential of flash flooding concerns.

The front sparking tonight’s storms will inch its way closer to us Thursday.

This opens the door for slow-moving showers and storms at times Thursday into Friday as the boundary stalls out across the region.

Given the amount of humidity in the air reaching the tropical category on the muggy meter, these storms will be efficient at producing heavy rainfall.

Due to the scattered nature of storms, it will not be heavy rain for all, but those that see multiple rounds of rain could see issues with flash flooding concerns.

This also means that both days will not be washouts as there will be plenty of dry periods.

We will continue to monitor the flooding potential headed into the weekend.

Rain chances continue into Saturday and Sunday but coverage will not be as widespread.

Early next week looks to bring another front through Northeast Ohio putting an end to our daily rain chances and high humidity.
