Expect temps to start off mild on Monday with windy conditions. Winds could gust as high at 30-35 mph Monday as a front approaches. We'll start off in the 50s and 60s, before temps falling during the afternoon with scattered rain.
Clouds prevented any records from falling on Sunday with most places topping out in the upper 60s to near 70.
A cold front will move through Monday afternoon bringing in showers and much cooler weather. In fact, by Monday night, we'll see lows bottoming out in the 30s after starting the day in the 60s.

South winds and a bright sunshine filled sky will bring our temperatures even higher! Enjoy it while it lasts though because clouds return tonight, rain returns tomorrow and the cold returns Tuesday.
High temperatures today will threaten records that date back to the early 1900s across Northern Ohio. Expect temperatures to touch near 70º this afternoon, only a couple degrees below the record. This is all happening just before our next cold front rushes in. Clouds will be on the increase overnight setting the stage for rain and thunder through much of your Monday. Plan for a washout to kick of the work-week.
Temperatures will be held in the 50s Monday before falling quickly through the 40s and into the lower 30s before sunrise Tuesday. Any rain still lingering Tuesday morning will be accompanied by a few wet snowflakes. The cold air will take over for the rest of the work-week. High temperatures Tuesday will hold in the 30s with lower and middle 40s until next weekend.
