CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - * Muggy and very mild tonight

* Hazy, hot again with chance of late day storms Monday (Heat index around 100 degrees)

* Scattered Showers and Storms Tuesday

Overnight lows not very low! Most should fall to about 73 but by 8am possible near 80. We'll be into the 90s by noon!  Record or near record heat will be coupled with high humidity levels to make it feel like temperatures are up to 100 degrees Monday.  The danger of possible heat stress, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are all threats.  Monday we could see storms as early as dinner-time as a cold front will drop down into Cleveland around 6pm we could start seeing some storms. Don't think of this as a cold--temperature drop--front...think of it as a cool down a bit. As the rest of the week we are in the 80s.

Northeast Ohioans are encouraged to drink plenty of water -- especially young children and the elderly -- and to avoid long periods in the sun, which could lead to dehydration or heat exhaustion.
