9:00 pm Update: Happy weekend everyone! A quiet start to your evening. Skies are partly to mostly cloudy. Temperatures will hang in the upper 20s and lower 30s thru 11pm.
We will stay dry tonight. Low temperatures will only fall back into the middle and upper 20s. In fact those readings will probably occur around midnight. Then, with milder air moving in from the south, I expect temperatures to rise a few degrees by dawn. We'll start the day out in the middle and upper 30s.
Saturday looks warmer. Highs will climb into the middle 40s. Skies will be partly cloudy. Southwest winds will become blustery during the afternoon, sometimes gusting up to 30 mph.
The warm-up will be short lived. A strong Arctic cold front is fast approaching from the northwest. It will arrive early Sunday morning. Scattered snow showers are possible with the front for everyone. Accumulations should stay well below an inch. Temperatures will hover in the middle and upper 20s Sunday with windy conditions making it feel much colder!
12:32 pm Update: Temperatures are struggling to warm despite the bright sunshine. We will eventually hit the lower 30s today and hover near 30º overnight. By Saturday afternoon we'll be in the middle 40s before the arctic plunge arrives! Snow and very cold air rushes into Ohio Sunday.
9:16 am Update: The flurries are ending and sunshine is taking over. We'll rebound from the bitter cold morning with highs near 30 this afternoon. Plan on a partly to mainly sunny afternoon, grab the sunglasses!
The first thing you'll notice outside this morning is the cold! Temperatures are in the 20s, but wind chills are in the teens. Scattered flurries are possible in Lorain, Cuyahoga, Summit and Medina Counties.
It's mostly cloudy right now, but I expect increasing sun this afternoon. Highs will reach the low 30s.
Cloudy and breezy conditions continue tonight with lows in the upper 20s. Although temperatures will jump to the mid-40s Saturday, it will feel much cooler with the wind.
The arctic front arrives Saturday night with scattered snow showers. Temperatures will fall from the 20s early Sunday to the teens by Sunday night.
Monday's high will be near 20 degrees before the coldest air reaches us Tuesday. Highs will only hit the teens with lows in the single digits.
Wednesday will also be cold, but warmer air quickly returns Thursday and Friday. By Thursday, highs will be back in the 30s. A chance of rain is even in the forecast late next week!
