Severe Weather Threat

The National Weather Service says there is a threat of severe weather Monday night and overnight into early Tuesday morning.

A line of complex severe storms that will move through the area could include damaging wind gusts of up to 75 miles per hour, large hail, heavy rainfall, lightning and even tornadoes.

The primary threat will be damaging wind gusts, but heavy rainfall could also lead to flooding. The strong winds could bring down power lines, causing power outages.

Then, after the storms move through, the heat really cranks up.

An Excessive Heat Watch will be in effect for Findlay and Hancock County from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night.

Forecasted highs of 94 Tuesday, 98 Wednesday and 95 on Thursday and it’ll feel even hotter with the heat index values.
