I'm Meteorologist Jason Nicholas continuing our weather web coverage today. For more weather updates, follow me on Twitter @ JasonNweather.
There's a chance at some morning rain with some thunder as moisture slides in from the west. Keep the umbrella handy on Monday.
We're seeing temps in the mid to upper 80s across the area under partly to mostly sunny skies. We may see a pop shower or storm later tonight, but otherwise, we'll stay warm and humid.
Midday Update: Temperatures will continue to warm this afternoon under a bright sunshine. Winds will remain light out of the west and southwest from 5-10 mph. Expect the lake breeze to develop keeping areas along the lake 2-4 degrees cooler. Inland areas should top out near 90 today. Storms are still possible along the lake breeze but should remain isolated and brief. Be sure to check back often for updates.
11:00 a.m. Update: Lower 80s already popping up across NE OH this morning. Expect the warm-up to continue under a mostly sunny sky.
Southwest winds return today kicking up the heat and humidity. Sunshine will continue to dominate as we touch near 90º this afternoon. Early this afternoon a lake breeze will develop keeping areas along the beach in the upper 80s. Most of northeast Ohio will stay mostly sunny and rain free but an isolated storm could pop up along the lake breeze. If any storms to spark, expect brief downpours and occasional lightning. Any storms will dissipate by sunset with partly cloudy skies overnight.
Overnight, winds will pick up out of the west, expect Monday morning breezes to blow 10-15 mph. Our next cold front will approach throughout Monday afternoon. Expect another hot day with highs near 90º but storms will be more numerous. Late afternoon, the cold front will be close enough to spark isolated storms. Tuesday still stands to be the best chance for storms. The cold front will pass through Ohio Tuesday bringing widespread storms. Some of these could be strong to even severe.
Wednesday will be mostly dry but another front will push through early Thursday. Timing is still unsure with this front but should be out of here by Friday.
