Grab the rain gear heading out and about for Tuesday with scattered showers and storms in the forecast. Temps will start out in the low 70s and make a run at 80. The wet weather threat should into the afternoon before drier air arrives later tonight and into Wednesday. We have a severe storm risk, SE of Cleveland this afternoon as a weak cold front slides through.
MONDAY EVENING FORECAST: Its the first day of Meteorological Fall. In the weather world, September, October, & November are considered the Fall months. Summer weather will hang around most of this week though. Low temperatures tonight will only drop back to near 70. With a weak surface trough driving in, a few thunderstorms are possible tonight.
Another cold front will slide south thru the area on Tuesday. I expect widely scattered rain showers, with some embedded storms to move in with the front by late morning or early afternoon. Skies will be mostly cloudy with high temperatures near 80 degrees.
LABOR DAY FORECAST: Get ready to fire up the grill! We're warmer with temps back in the middle 80s. Humidity is also on the rise, it'll feel quite "soupy" this afternoon. Be sure to stay hydrated during your afternoon BBQs. With this much heat and humidity, I can't rule out an isolated afternoon storm BUT most of the rain holds off until closer to sunset.
A complex of strong/severe storms will be weakening as they push into Ohio. Some of these will hold together long enough to slide through NE OH but should be weakening.
