CLEVELAND - 8:30 pm Update: Storms building now along the cold front in southern Ontario. These storms are moving southeast toward Western New York State. Unless the line fills in farther west toward Detroit, we will stay dry all night here in Ohio. I'll keep an eye out!
5:26 pm Update: Today's high in Cleveland: 94 degrees. Akron hit 90 degrees. 19th day of 90+ degree temperatures this summer!
5:00 pm Update: The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK has included ALL of Northern Ohio in the risk area for Severe Thunderstorms today... Problem is there is no trigger to get any storms fired up. The threat for thunder through this evening is pretty much 0%. Tribe game should be dry... any out door activities through 11 pm have an incredible chance of being dry. Evening temperatures will hover in the 80s under a partly cloudy sky. Lows tonight will drop back to between 70 & 75 degrees. There is a small chance for a thunderstorm to move in closer to the morning rush hour on Tuesday.
Isolated storms are possible during the morning and early afternoon Tuesday. Skies will be mostly cloudy during the day with highs in the middle 80s.
Wednesday will be mainly sunny with highs in the lower to middle 80s. Great day to mow the lawn!
Thursday looks stormy. A round of strong to severe storms are possible during the afternoon and evening. Highs could top 90 degrees again.

91 in Cleveland. Day number 19 of 90 plus degree heat. More than double our typical year.
Temps have soared into the upper 80s and to 90 in Cleveland. Cooler across the south, where it rained earlier today.
The region is still under a SLIGHT RISK for severe storms.
Rain from southern Michigan and eastern Indiana has moved into Ohio. A chance of showers continues through noon. Richland, Ashland, Wayne, Tuscarawas and Holmes Counties have the best chance of light rain.
The sky will gradually clear this afternoon, but I can't rule out an isolated shower or thunderstorm later today/tonight. Most of Ohio is under a slight risk of severe weather. Any isolated storm that develops may produce large hail and damaging wind gusts.
A cold front will approach early Tuesday, keeping scattered storms in the forecast. Most activity will move south by lunchtime Tuesday, followed by gradual clearing.
The front will stall in southern Ohio Wednesday. We'll be dry with high pressure in control. Highs will hit the mid-80s.
The front rides back north Thursday, increasing chances for showers and thunderstorms at the end of the week.
That same cold front lingers overhead through Saturday, keeping the chance of scattered rain in the forecast. Tough call this week!
Highs will mainly be in the mid-to-upper 80s this week. Lows near 70.
