Very Autumnal

windy_umbrellaA strong cold front passed through the area around 4-5 am today with gusty thunderstorms.  A few isolated severe t-storm warnings were issued.  Minor issues were reported due to the gusty winds.

A powerful storm will continue to reside over the northern Great Lakes through Tuesday.  This will keep gusty winds in the area today into tonight.

Winds will be sustained at 20 to 30 mph, but occasional gusts will be close to 45 mph.  A wind advisory is in effect for the entire viewing area.

Much cooler air will continue to settle into our area the next few days.  High temperatures will be hard-pressed to break out of the lower 60s.  Lows Tuesday night/Wednesday morning will drop to near 40°, and into the upper 30s Wednesday night/Thursday morning .  Areas well northwest of  Toledo could see the first frost of the season.

Temps will moderate a bit by the end of the week.
