The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory, which is in effect from 1 p.m. Monday through 1 p.m. Tuesday. We’re expecting northwest winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts over 45 mph
For this morning, it will be a rainy commute, but a mild one with temperatures in the mid and upper 40’s. That will all change once a strong cold front clears the area. Behind it, falling temperatures and blustery conditions. Our commute in the afternoon could be a little more challenging.
The wicked winds will bring colder air and snow to northeast Ohio tonight. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for a few counties beginning this evening.
