CLEVELAND — Get ready to sweat! Today will be even hotter than this weekend with high temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. Dew points will be increasing, so that means it will feel more humid and steamy outside as well.

Heat index values Monday and Tuesday will be in the mid to upper nineties.

There are also daily thunderstorm chances during your workweek. Increasing heat and increasing humidity = increasing instability.

An unstable atmosphere is important for storm development.

There is also an upper-level disturbance that will increase shower and storm chances throughout Monday afternoon and evening. Storms will then continue into Tuesday.

The Storm Prediction Center has posted a risk for severe weather for both days.
