Pattern Flip: Strong storms and crashing temperatures

Posted at 11:34 AM, Apr 24, 2022

CLEVELAND — Wow, what a weekend! We were close to record high temperatures Saturday with a high of 84 degrees in Cleveland.

The record high Saturday was 86 set back in 1985. We made it up to 88 degrees Sunday afternoon which was about 5 degrees shy of our record high of 88 from 1925.


We still get pretty warm this morning into the 70s ahead of a strong cold front with a sharp drop in temps to the 50s by mid-late afternoon.


There is a very low Marginal threat that a few storms could be strong to severe for PM hours.

The best chance arrives from about noon to 8 p.m. The main threat would be an isolated damaging wind gust near 60 mph and hail around quarter size.


Showers and storms continue through early tonight, fading overnight. Temperatures dip to the 40s tonight with high temperatures only near 50 by Tuesday p.m.

An isolated rain shower is possible Tuesday but models are showing Tuesday mainly dry.

And just in Cleveland fashion, it's back to winter Wednesday with a wintry mix that may impact your morning plans.

But it's a nice rebound to wrap up the week with milder air returning to NE Ohio.
