Tornadoes wreaked havoc in southwest and west central Ohio on Monday night and the possibility of severe weather continues in north central Ohio this week.

According to the National Weather Service office in Cleveland, a cold front will move into the region this afternoon. The main threat will be damaging winds but hail will be possible.

"While a tornado can't be ruled out, the chances are very low. Multiple rounds of storms along and south of the front may cause flooding," the NWS said.

On Wednesday, storms may move into NW Ohio from Indiana in the morning with additional development possible in the afternoon, the NWS said. Strong damaging winds will be the main concern but hail will be possible. Localized heavy rainfall may cause flooding.

A stronger cold front will cross the area on Thursday with another round of strong to severe thunderstorms possible.
