CLEVELAND — Last day of intense heat & humidity! Last day for awhile at least... The rest of the week is GREAT with highs in the 70s/lower 80s and LOW humidity.

Our next cold front rolls in overnight & will bring a major pattern flip for the rest of the week. I expect a line of storms to move thorough from about 6-11 pm. Few strong wind gusts of 50-60 mph and frequent lightning are the main threats along with some possible flooding.

Severe threat fades tonight and MUCH more comfortable air settles in for the rest of the week.

Spotty rain and a few storms will stick around for parts of Tuesday before we start to dry things out.

Make sure you're staying up to date on the forecast as you make your plans.

What To Expect:

  • Rounds of rain and storms tonight and early Tuesday
  • Few storms could be strong to severe early tonight
  • Warm & muggy air departing
  • Storms could cause some brief flash flooding
  • Cooler weather arrives later this week

Daily Breakdown:

Tonight: Storms increase ahead of cold front.| Low: 70º

Tuesday: Spotty rain and storms along with cooler temperatures.| High: 75º

Wednesday: Temps still below average. | High: 80º

Thursday: Comfortable and less humid. | High: 78º
