More widely scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible Tuesday, especially during the afternoon as a week front tries to drop in and push what's left of Isaac out of here. High temperatures will climb into the lower 80s.

UPDATE: 330p: So far, our lake breeze is keeping the lakeshore dry. Showers moving NW have faded near the shoreline.
UPDATE 315p: Heaviest rains across northern Ohio are located near Wooster moving 10-20 mph.

UPDATE 130p: Temps are already in the middle 80s with sunshine and high humidity. I expect highs in the middle to upper 80s across the lakeshore, with cooler readings south, where high clouds have moved in.
UPDATE 1230p: Seeing sunshine north, and clouds south. We may see a storm or shower pop up this afternoon, mainly along and south of US 30 - otherwise, we should stay humid and dry. Any shower that develops will be slow moving and contain heavy rains.
UPDATE: Skies are mostly sunny. Rain showers are stuck along Interstate 70, well to our south for now. As the air overhead de-stabilizes this afternoon, widely scattered showers/t'storms will begin to pop up across parts of our region. While timing storm development today is difficult, we should begin to see at least a few storms developing in Northern Ohio by 4pm. Current high resolution forecasts suggest a line of thundershowers developing from near Medina to Akron to Ravenna by about 2pm. If this development does occur, these thunderstorms would move slowly north into Cuyahoga, Geauga, & Lake Counties by 4pm. We will keep you posted today via Facebook, Twitter, & our Severe Storm Tracking Page as the storms develop...
This morning's rain is holding south of the I-70 corridor but don't expect it stay there all day. Throughout your Labor Day Monday, tropical moisture will surge northward. As far as rain chances go, expect a mainly dry Monday. With all the moisture rushing northward we can't rule out rain though. So if you have outdoor plans, maybe checking out some of the festivals this afternoon, expect plenty of dry time but have that backup plan thought out just in case.
The best chances for rain will be south of the hwy 30 corridor through midday. After lunchtime, we will see that line slowly push north as we work in a little daytime heating. Tropical moisture, temperatures near 80 and light winds will allow scattered storms to spark. Throughout the afternoon, everyone in Ohio will have the potential for heavy rain producing storms.
After sunset, any storms around the area will clear out. The clouds will linger though keeping temps in the 70s much of the night. As you head back to school or work Tuesday, plan for another wet feeling day. As this entire system tries to wrap up and push out, we will get in on another chance for rain.
