The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for Cuyahoga, Lake and Ashtabula counties.
Meteorologists are predicting that the region will be buffeted with strong southwestern winds from now until 1 a.m. Tuesday.
The winds are predicted to be 20 to 30 mph with the occasional gust reaching 50 mph.
They are being created by a strong low pressure system that is pulling a cold front east across northern Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania. It is creating a tight pressure gradient that will remain throughout the day.
We'll see temperatures in the high 40s today, with rain after 3 p.m. As the sun sets, the temperature will drop into the low 30s, creating snow after 5 p.m. Tonight temperatures will drop as low as 28 degrees. No snow accumulation is expected.
Strong winds can knock down trees and power lines. Please let us know if you see any wind damage in your community — especially if it closes a road — so we can update this story.
