A warm front has now lifted well north of the area. A weakening convective complex will move across northern Ohio this morning, producing a period of showers along with a few rumbles of thunder. This activity will end by mid to late morning. Skies will become partly sunny this afternoon. A few thunderstorms could redevelop with the heating of the day. A few of the storms could be severe.
Tonight will be partly cloudy with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms possible. We will have to keep an eye on any upstream complexes which could organize and head our way, increasing our rain chances overnight.
Tuesday, a cold front will approach from the west. Widespread shower and thunderstorm activity will develop and spread across northeastern Ohio during the afternoon. A few of the storms Tuesday afternoon could be severe.
Showers and thunderstorms will continue Tuesday night as the cold front moves through.
On Wednesday, an area of low pressure will begin to take shape to our southwest. We may see a break in the rainfall during the morning, but showers will spread back across the area during the afternoon.
Here is the forecast: For today, it will be partly sunny with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be around 80. Winds SW 5-10 mph.

Extended Analysis: A deep upper level trough of low pressure will dig into the western Great Lakes on Thursday, then gradually spread eastward through Saturday. Occasional disturbances will interact with wrap-around moisture to bringing periods of showers to northeastern Ohio Thursday through Saturday. Temperatures under the upper trough will be below average through the period.
