CLEVELAND — Heavy rain and a few rumbles of thunder will move across our area this morning and into the afternoon, sinking south off of the lake.

Rain will be heavy at times as it develops into the afternoon, particularly east of Cleveland, in cities such as Willowick, University Heights, Shaker Heights, Euclid and Mentor.

The rain will move out toward the southeast area of Cleveland. Plan ahead for downpours, especially this afternoon. Localized flooding is the main threat.

Gusty winds and lightning are also likely with the strongest storms. Some storms could be damaging, prompting severe thunderstorm warnings.

Heavy rain will produce low visibility in the morning commute.

The second half of the day a cold front will roll through, pushing east. Wednesday will be drier.
