A powerful storm across the Great Lakes will bring strong thunderstorms to the region Sunday. Gusty winds and drenching downpours may accompany some of the storms.

In addition to the thunderstorms, cooler temperatures will invade as well.

Temperatures have been running above normal since the end of September but temperatures will begin to drop Sunday and will take a dive into the 60s early next week.

Cooler conditions will continue to grip the area early this week in response to a passing of a cool front. Rain will stick around early in the week but it will gradually dry out as the week progresses.

Highs are expected to remain in the low to mid 60s through mid-week before finally breaking into the 70s by the end of the week.
