Northeast Ohio Weather: High Wind Warning in effect through early Monday

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A HIGH WIND WARNING will be in effect through 7 a.m. Monday.

Forecast: High Wind Warning in effect through early Monday

Southwest winds up to 40 MPH are expected, with wind gusts over 50 - 60 MPH. This will cause downed power lines, trees, and property damage.

These are the type of strong winds that bring widespread power outages.

First line of gusty winds will be here this morning as the cold front passes, followed by another round of wind gusts through the afternoon and evening, especially for the eastern half of the area.

Expect the strongest winds along the lakeshore.

Lakeshore flooding may also be a possibility, as well as ice piling up along the shoreline. Those will be a few other things to watch through the day Sunday.

Lingering rain is possible through the early morning Sunday, followed by a gradual temperature drop behind the front.

Lake effect snow is a possibility through the later part of the day as temperatures drop.

With winds so strong, expect lake effect bands to be pushed farther inland. It looks like the best set-up for lake effect bands will mainly be in NW PA.

Breezy conditions will stick around through Monday with wind gusts up to 45 MPH possible.

Temperatures will will also be a lot colder, staying below freezing through the day.

Lake effect flurry chances will be with us through the start of the week with mainly quiet conditions.

Highs through Wednesday will stay right around freezing.
