FORECAST | Rain showers on the way, winds ramp up

A strong storm system will impact the area tonight-Monday prompting a Wind Advisory for the area.

CLEVELAND — As a strong area of low pressure will get going to our west, our winds will begin to ramp up late this evening into the overnight. As a result, a Wind Advisory has been prompted beginning Monday at 10a through 10p for Ottawa, Erie, Lorain, Cuyahoga, and Lake counties. Gusts are expected to top 40 to 50mph along with a Gale Warning in place for Lake Erie with wave heights nearing 9 feet. 

As for tonight, temperatures will climb out of the low 40s and surge into the mid 50s tonight. Rain will move in and scattered on and off downpours can be expected through the early morning. 

Winds will continue to crank Monday as the cold front moves through northern Ohio. We'll begin our day in the 50s, but temps will tumble quickly into the 30s behind the front. Rain will end giving way to some lake effect snow later in the day.

Lingering lake snows can be expected on Tuesday, mainly in the snowbelt east of Cleveland towards Erie. Otherwise we'll see clouds and sun peeks with cold highs near 30.  

Our next system arrives shortly thereafter with some light snow expected late Tuesday into Wednesday with another packing more might and grit towards the end of the week into next weekend. 


TONIGHT: Cloudy with scattered rain ramping up through the evening and overnight along with gusts approaching 30mph. Temps slowly climbing through the night to 50 for some. 

MONDAY: Gusty winds with rain turning turning to a rain-snow mix and scattered lake snows late. 50s early then falling to mid 30s by late afternoon.

TUESDAY: Lingering lake effect snow, otherwise mostly cloudy and cold. Mid to upper 20s nearing 30.
