High wind warnings and advisories remain for much of north country.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather statement for all of Ohio ahead of anticipated heavy rain, winds blasting up to 50 mph and “a strong cold front” expected to bring more windy weather. “A few stronger showers or an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon will be capable of producing wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph in northeast Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania,” the weather service said.The last week of October should start out on a sunny note in Madison, but rain is expected to move into the region on Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday. The Akron-Canton area received 0.7 inch of rainfall from Tuesday evening up until 10:15 a.m. today, said Will Kubina, meteorologist with the weather service’s Cleveland office. “Another half inch to an inch is on the way,” he said at the time, reporting that the Dayton area had already had more than 3 inches of rainfall and that Toledo had more than 2 inches. Sustained winds could reach 20 to 30 mph, with gusts in the 45 to 55 mph range. ■ People who depend on electric-powered life support equipment, such as a respirator, should let National Grid know.
