The much-anticipated Browns home game is on Sunday, but the weather moving into our area is anything but welcomed.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon will be moving into the area starting on Saturday night and will continue through Monday—making for less-than-ideal conditions to start the Browns season.

Highs are expected to be only in the 60s, which would be the coolest day since early June.

If you plan on going to the Browns game, plan on getting very wet. A poncho or rain jacket will be essential to surviving the torrential downpour that is expected to come down during the game.

Several inches of steady rainfall is expected through that time period, which could create flooding issues for some locales.

The weather models throughout the afternoon change slightly with rain sticking around for the majority of the day.

Many areas in Northeast Ohio could see anywhere from 2-4 inches of rain with local amounts of 5 inches or more by noon on Monday.
