CLEVELAND - Follow @JasonNweather
We're seeing skies clearing out across the area, with most of the rain now to our east. Lows tonight will fall to near 70 with some fog.
For Monday, we'll see plenty of sun, but we could also see an isolated storm popping up in the afternoon. Highs Monday will again be warm, into the middle 80s.
Many spots saw nearly an inch of rain Sunday. The rain was much needed.
The heat will be on again by mid-week, with highs near 90 likely.
Update: Local reports of up to an inch are likely through this evening. The line of heavy rain is pushing past the I-77 Corridor at 30mph. No reports of hail but pea-size is possible. After the rain stops in your backyard, you should be done for the evening. If it hasn't started yet, it's on it's way. Everyone will get at least 1/4" with this system.
Update: The line of heavy rain and occasional lighting is pushing across the I-77 corridor. Temperatures drop from near 80º to the lower 70s when the rain starts. Expect heavy rain with the potential for ponding on roads. Drive safely this evening. The rain will push east and out of Ohio by 10pm.
Update: Leading edge of the heaviest rain is now stretching from Vermilion through Mansfield to Columbus. Light rain is stretching out in front as far as downtown Cleveland to Wooster. This line will continue east at 25 mph.
Update: Storms along the cold front are entering our western counties The main threat with this slow moving line is heavy rain and street flooding. Never try to cross a flooded roadway. This line is spreading east at 25 mph and will continue into the evening. Temps have warmed into the lower 80s.
Update: Scattered storms still lingering around east of I-77 with brief heavy rain. These will continue to weaken as more storms start to pop west of I-77 this afternoon. It'll stay humid through the day with peeks of sunshine. Expect this afternoon's storms to slowly move east after 2pm.
Expect thunderstorms to spark as a cold front pushes through Ohio today. Despite the storms, we will still get in on plenty of dry-time. Most of your outdoor plans will be ok but keep your eye on the sky.
The 1st of 2 rounds will push through during the morning hours. Expect brief heavy rain, frequent lightning and thunder. Gusty winds and small is also a possibility but not a major threat. The morning's storms should stay relatively weak and push out of Ohio by noon.
The second round will likely hold off until the cold front gets closer. In the meantime, temps will warm quickly into the lower 80s with a breezy south wind. Your midday plans will be mainly dry but warm and muggy, setting the stage for round 2.
Expect storms to spark during the mid-late afternoon. These storms will likely be stronger than the morning's round. Heavy rain and frequent lightning are the main threat, we can't rule out an isolated storm with hail and gusty winds.
These will likely clear out of Ohio around sunset. By Monday morning expect a dry morning commute with temps in the middle 60s. Middle 80s return Monday afternoon with much more heat on the way. Summer-like heat arrives just in time for summer! Wednesday is the first day of summer with highs in the lower 90s.
