CLEVELAND — The Power of 5 Weather Team is tracking a complex of severe storms coming from the Northwest Monday evening, including an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms for the western and southwestern parts of the News 5 viewing area.
The fog has faded, and by the afternoon, temps will warm back to near 80 degrees.
The main threat with this evening’s complex of storms will be wind damage. It's the leading edge as it rolls in.
A line of very strong thunderstorms will develop Monday over portions of the upper Midwest and then slide southeast towards Ohio Monday evening and overnight.
Damaging winds of 70 mph and higher are possible, especially from Norwalk/Lake Erie Islands south to Mansfield.
Different weather models show different timing for these severe storms. One model has them coming in between 8 p.m. and midnight. The other shows the storms holding off until Tuesday morning.
Flooding is also a threat and a brief tornado can't be ruled out.
Then we shift our focus over to flooding rain overnight. Make sure you're paying attention and prepping for these storms.
