CLEVELAND - Follow @MarkJWeather
9:40 pm Update: Skies tonight will be partly to mostly cloudy area wide. Most of the thundershowers will fade overnight. However, with a weak area of low pressure aloft moving across Western Ohio, I can't rule out an isolated thundershower west of a Sandusky to Norwalk line. Lows will drop back into the middle 50s.
A weak trough of low pressure currently over Northern Ohio will hang around through much of the a day on Tuesday. Isolated thundershowers are possible again during the day, especially east of Interstate 77 where the best moisture resides. Highs under a partly to mostly cloudy sky will climb into the upper 70s.
4:45 pm Update: Isolated thundershowers across parts of Northern Ohio thru the evening. Strongest storm is currently over Central Ashland County. Storms are drifting very slowly east/southeast. Expect heavy rainfall with this cluster of storms.

UPDATE: Lone storm near Auburn Center in Geauga county likely producing small hail.
UPDATE: Few storms forming in central and southern Geauga, near Burton. Slow movers - lots of rain and thunder.
UPDATE: Storms now becoming more isolated - just a few in Summit and Portage, as well as southern Lorain, north of Wellington. None are severe.
UPDATE: Storm between Richfield and Brecksville just north of turnpike likely producing small hail.
UPDATE: Storms weakening a bit over the lake, but strengthening over land. Storms have formed near Grafton, and from Independence to Richfield along I77. Another line of storms from Ravenna to Warren.
UPDATE: A small, slow moving storm has formed west of Strongsville moving east. Lightning, heavy rain likely.
UPDATE: We''re seeing storms popping up, mainly over the lake and moving east. There are likely water spouts within these storms - so anyone along the lakeshore, beware.
Update: This mornings thundery weather has broken apart, only isolated showers likely through lunch time along the lake. The nexxt round will likely be more widespread and further south.
Update: Slow moving thunder shower pushing through Avon Lake, Rocky River, Westlake, Bay village and Lakewood. This line is slowly pushing south toward I-90.
As a slow moving cold front pushes south today we will again be greeted with comfortable weather. Temperatures will hold in the 70s again this afternoon for highs under a mix of sun and clouds. As the cold front sinks south, expect another round of thundery weather this afternoon. The main threat with these storms will be brief heavy rain and gusty winds although we can't rule out small hail.
Any storms around the area will push east and weaken closer to sunset as we clear out overnight. Temps will drop quickly into the 50s by sunrise Tuesday. The front will still be on its slow journey southeast which will again likely spark storms across our southern counties. These will push out near sunset and likely end our rain chances for the rest of the week.
The heat builds back into NE OH by Wednesday with highs near 80 and pushing the middle 80s by Friday!
