Updates from the News 5 Weather team
Storms are forming near Marion, Shelby and Norwalk, so they will likely be near Cleveland around noon, tracking southeast through the rest of the area by 4 p.m.
There's a low marginal severe threat for Cleveland, but a higher Category 2 slight risk for parts of Akron and Canton.
The main threat will be a few damaging wind gusts near 60 mph or higher. A brief tornado and large hail can't be ruled out.
These storms should fade during the evening drive with only a few lingering showers this evening.
Get ready for a cool down. Highs Tuesday, on the heels of today's cold front, will be in the mid-60s! It's a brief break from summer though, as 80s will be coming right back late in the week.
