CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The 19 First Alert Weather Team has issued an Alert Day as widespread heavy rain moves in Sunday.

Widespread 1-2″ of rain is expected with localized higher amounts south of Cleveland.

The biggest impact from this system will be flooding potential, especially in flood-prone areas.

Travel will also be impacted as heavy rain could lead to ponding on the roadways and reduced visibility.

The day will start chilly with wake up temperatures in the upper 30s/around 40 degrees.

Colder air higher up in the atmosphere could lead to a few wet snowflakes mixing in early Sunday morning.

This will be an all day rain event with high temperatures staying cold through the afternoon.

Highs will struggle to make it close to 50 degrees.

We will slowly dry out by early Monday morning.

Temperatures stay cooler but we will see a drying trend through the week.
