CLEVELAND — This weekend was gorgeous, warm and summery. But the week ahead is a wild ride. There is something for everybody this week - starting with storms returning to northeast Ohio on Monday.

An area of low pressure to our northwest will slide toward the area and drag a cold front through Northeast Ohio on Monday. This will bring widespread showers and storms tomorrow.


Overnight, a few showers are possible but will increase in coverage between 4 - 6 a.m. Monday. Plan for widespread showers and a soggy start to the school/work week.

During the afternoon, a lull is expected with most locations drying up. However, additional storms are expected to develop during the afternoon. There is a conditional and isolated threat for severe weather Monday afternoon. We will be watching for a few strong/severe wind gusts and large hail.

Tuesday will be predominately dry, but a strong system moves through the middle of the week. This system will feature more storms and a stronger cold front. Once again, strong to severe storms will be possible. PLUS, the cold front will usher in MUCH cooler air. Highs on Friday could be in the 50s. That will be about a 20-25 degree drop from Wednesday afternoon.
