Late tonight an area of showers and storms over the Midwest will drop southeast into the southwest half of Ohio before daybreak, weakening and moving away shortly after dawn.

A storm will track from northern Illinois to the southern Great Lakes Monday afternoon, triggering a few lines of showers and gusty storms focused ahead of a cold front. A few storms could be strong to severe. Afternoon readings will be in the low 80s, under mostly cloudy skies.
