Conditions have stabilized overnight allowing isolated storms to end overnight, although the latest SPC mesoanalysis shows 500+ MU/CAPE hanging on over portions of nw Ohio including the Lima area. A weak wave was along the front over northern Indiana.
This system/low will move east and cause the front to temporarily move south of the area today setting the stage for the front to return north as a warm front Tuesday. A variety of severe weather is possible Tuesday into Wednesday given a very large amount of bulk shear that develops Tuesday in tandem with increasing upper level support from a negatively tilted upper level trof. As for SPC, there is a marginal risk of severe storms Tuesday as the warm front moves north followed by a slight risk for severe storms Wednesday as a cold front with stronger upper level support arrives. Given the amount of bulk shear, a modifying EML over the area helping CAPEs to max out between 1000 to 2000 J/Kg, upper level support and high precipitable water values, this scenario supports a chance for all hazards including a isolated tornado, large hail, strong to severe gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall.

Ongoing river flooding was improving early this morning at 3 of the 4 remaining river flood locations across the Upper Wabash especially south of Ft Wayne from the Bluffton area down to Geneva where several roads are still likely to remain impassible according to a survey Sunday and ongoing river gauge readings.
Any heavy additional rain may aggravate this current situation.
Otherwise, a cooler and drier pattern change will begin late this week with as a longwave trof axis sets up over east North America. Temperatures may drop to freezing this coming weekend.

Dry and stable conditions on the southern flank of high pressure will allow VFR/dry conditions to prevail through the TAF cycle.
