CLEVELAND - 8:00 pm Update: Skies are clearing quickly now as a pocket of drier air slides eastward into Ohio tonight. THis will give you a chance to see the full Beaver Moon tonight. Low temperatures overnight will drop into the lower and middle 20s most spots. So, be prepared for the cold!
A weak Alberta Clipper system will slide thru the Great Lakes on Wednesday. There is not much to this system for us. We'll see partly to mostly sunny skies through the day. There could be an isolated sprinkle or light snow flurry across the Snow Belt areas east of Cleveland during the afternoon. Nothing to really get in your way. High temperatures will climb up to near 40 degrees.
Thursday looks mainly sunny with highs in the middle 40s. Friday may bring in an isolated rain shower and milder temperatures. Highs will climb into the upper 40s to near 50.
Saturday and Sunday will be mild. Highs will climb into the 50s both days. Right now, Saturday looks dry. A few widely scattered rain showers are possible on Sunday. Welcome December!
We're under a thick blanket of low clouds, especially near the lake. I can't rule out isolated flurries this afternoon, but most areas will stay snow-free.
Some clearing is possible south late this afternoon, as high pressure builds in from the west. Otherwise look for mostly cloudy skies and chilly highs in the mid-30s.
High clouds will stream overhead tonight with lows in the low 20s. Wooster may drop to the upper teens!
A weak front will linger north of Lake Erie Wednesday. I don't expect any snow from the front, but clouds will hang tough in the morning. With the help of clearing skies Wednesday afternoon, high temperatures will be slightly warmer, near 40 degrees.
Highs warm to the mid-40s Thursday under mostly sunny skies. By Friday, temperatures jump to the upper 40s.
A warmer weather system arrives for the weekend bringing a chance of rain showers and highs in the 50s. The best chance of scattered rain comes Sunday.
