CLEVELAND — A weak trough will slide SE across NE Ohio tonight and early Monday. That means some choppy water across eastern parts of Lake Erie and a risk of rip currents.

There will also be a risk of a few waterspouts east, so boaters use caution early Monday!

Small Craft Advisory is in place from Avon Point to Conneaut for NE Ohio until 4 pm Monday afternoon for 2-5' waves possible.

Most of Labor Day will be dry with only a slim chance of a stray shower. This is most likely early and to the NE of Cleveland. Highs will be in the mid 70s.

Heating up Tuesday as another front approaches. Some strong storms may develop late Tuesday with heavy rain & a few strong wind gusts.

Look for rain lingering early Wednesday with cooler temps rolling in for the rest of the work week.
