Remnants of Hurricane Florence could bring scattered showers Monday to Northeast Ohio

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The remnants of Hurricane Florence could bring scattered showers Monday to Northeast Ohio.

There is a 50 percent chance of showers after noon in Cleveland, but less than a tenth of an inch of precipitation is expected. Later Monday, there is a slight chance of showers through midnight, according to the National Weather Service.

The high temperature will be 73 degrees, with an overnight low of 68.

Akron could see up to a one-half of an inch of rain on Monday afternoon. Scattered rainfall in the area could persist until early Tuesday.

Florence, which was downgraded to a tropical storm on Sunday, is expected to abate as it moves through the Appalachians and the Northeast on Monday and Tuesday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency said.

Officials have attributed at least 17 deaths to Florence, which battered North Carolina and South Carolina over the weekend. Flooding forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes, and more than 740,000 people were without power on Sunday, according to the Associated Press.
