11:00 pm Update: High clouds from a storm along the east coast will continue to float overhead tonight. Lows will bottom out near 30 degrees.
More sunshine expected on Thursday. A few clouds will mix in at times. We will stay dry, with high temperatures climbing into the middle 40s again.
Some warmer air begins to arrive from the west on Friday. I expect temperatures to climb into the middle 50s during the afternoon under mainly sunny skies.
A warm front will move northeast thru Ohio early Saturday morning. I can't rule out an Isolated rain shower as the front moves out during the early to mid morning hours. Dry and warmer weather returns for the afternoon. Look for highs in the lower and middle 60s.
Sunday looks warmer and breezy. Temperatures will easily bounce up into the middle and upper 60s under partly cloudy skies. Enjoy!
We're seeing mainly sunny skies this afternoon and temps have risen into the middle and upper 40s. High clouds have arrived across the east, associated with the storm system hitting the east coast. We'll stay dry.
Update: The frost is gone and temperatures are on the way up. Only a few clouds expected the rest of the day as temps top out in the middle to upper 40s. You'll need the sunglasses and jackets as you head out for the afternoon.
Low pressure over Kentucky will continue to drift south this morning. At the same time, the Nor'Easter we've been tracking will move off the coast of New Jersey. These two systems will funnel a few high clouds into Northeast Ohio today.
After a cold start, highs will climb to the low 40s by 3 p.m. Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and dry conditions.
The sky will clear overnight as high pressure rebuilds. Low temperatures will be slightly warmer, near freezing.
Full sunshine returns Thursday and Friday, boosting high temperatures to the low 50s by the end of the week.
Temperatures climb even more this weekend, despite high clouds on Saturday. Warm, southerly winds will push temperatures to toe low 60s Saturday through Monday.
A strong cold front will cross Ohio Tuesday, triggering showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will drop to the 40s behind the front.
