CLEVELAND, Ohio — The National Weather Service says Northeast Ohio has gotten four more inches of rain than average so far this month.
Showers and thunderstorms will continue to travel through the area Saturday, but by the end of the weekend it will dry out, according to the National Weather Service.
Meteorologist Zach Sefcovic with NWS Cleveland said Cleveland Hopkins International Airport received more than 2 inches of rain in the last 24 hours.
The airport, so far, has gotten 6.9 inches of rain in July as of 8 a.m. Saturday, he said. This is 4.3 inches above the average for July at this time in the month.
Brecksville for example has had 6.43 inches of rain so far in July, Sefcovic said.
The rain Northeast Ohio has gotten this month is mainly from July 7 to Saturday, he said.
A small craft advisory is in effect until midnight Sunday. A flash flood watch for Cuyahoga County remains in effect until 8 p.m., he said.
“That’s mainly because we still have rain for most parts of the day,” Sefcovic said. “So there’s a chance for flooding to get worse before it gets better.”
Here is the forecast Sunday from the National Weather Service: Sunday will have patchy fog before 9 a.m. The rest of the day will be sunny with a high near 81 degrees.
Sunday night will be partly cloudy with a low around 66 degrees.
Monday will be mostly sunny with a high of 83.
The rain caused a number of events to be canceled.
