From Meteorologist Samantha Roberts:

Rain will overspread the area this morning. We'll have to deal with these showers through about midday.

At that point, we'll likely see some fog develop. I don't want that to catch you off guard.

For the afternoon hours, expect mostly cloudy skies and a chance for passing thunderstorms. Some storms may be strong to severe. The main threats will be damaging wind and heavy rain.

This complicates our temperature forecast in a major way. Where storms pop up, we'll likely get trapped in the 50s. Where we miss out on the afternoon thunderstorm activity, we could surge well into the 60s.

A round of widespread thunderstorm activity will move through after sunset. Some storms may be strong to severe. The main threats will be damaging wind and heavy rain.

According to the National Weather Service, a flood advisory could mean nuisance flooding, but is not considered a threat to life or property.

Severe thunderstorms could move through Northeast Ohio Tuesday afternoon, bringing damaging wind gusts and heavy rainfall.
