With heat and humidity lingering Monday and a cold front on the way, many parts of Northeast Ohio may experience some strong storms throughout the afternoon, according to News 5 Meteorologist Trent Magill.

Early in the afternoon, temperatures will rise to around 90 degrees with heat index readings in the mid-90s due to the humidity. A cold front headed towards Northeast Ohio, mixed with the heat and humidity lingering in the area, could cause storms to build.

Magill said to expect the storms to be strong and bring with them heavy rain with chances of flooding in some parts, lightning and strong—possibly damaging—winds.

The storms are likely to develop in the early afternoon and linger throughout the evening, Magill said.
