Area forecast discussion issued by the Cleveland National Weather Service at 10:12 p.m. on Sun, Oct 28:
we are also starting to notice stronger winds occurring along the axis from the lake south through cleveland and mansfield. we are concerned about these stronger winds that have been peaking out at around 40 mph...especially near the lake. this is much higher than what some of the text guidance suggests we should be seeing at this time. thinking is winds may increase a lot faster than forecast. so we are keeping a close eye on the winds.
