A wind advisory has been issued for Ottawa, Erie, Lorain, Cuyahoga, and Lake Counties. The advisory is in effect starting 10 am Monday morning until 10 pm Monday night. Ashtabula lakeshore county will be under a wind advisory from Noon Monday until 1 am Tuesday. West winds 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40-50 mph can be expected. Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects. Tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result. Use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high profile vehicle. Secure outdoor objects.

A gale warning has also been issued for Lake Erie from 10 am Monday to Monday night. West gales 25 to 40 knots with gusts up to 50 knots and waves 8 to 13 feet expected. Strong winds will cause hazardous waves which could capsize or damage vessels and reduce visibility.

A warm front moved through the area during the late afternoon. That means rising temperatures up into the 50s through early Monday. Rain will be a good bet tonight and Monday morning ahead of a cold front.

That front will arrive during the morning Monday. Expect morning highs in the 50s with rapidly falling afternoon temperatures. Few light snow showers may develop by Monday PM as much colder air pours in. Any accumulation should be minimal.

The major weather headline for tonight and Monday will be the WIND! Expect winds near 30 mph behind the cold front with gusts 40-50 mph.
