10:00 pm Update: Rain is done. Clouds are thinning as well. Temperatures are dropping through the 40s now. We'll stay dry thru the rest of tonight with low temperatures ranging from 27 degrees near Wooster to the middle 30s around Cleveland.
Thursday looks dry. With lots of sunshine on the way, our temperatures should have no trouble reaching up into the upper 50s and lower 60s.
A weak cold front pushes into the region early Friday morning. There could be a couple of morning rush hour showers, primarily in the lakeshore counties. The rest of the day will be dry with partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will stay cool, in the lower 50s. High school football fans should plan on a very cool evening as temperatures by game time will have fallen back into the 40s. Friday evening and overnight will be dry.
7:00 pm Update: Rain showers are now confined to Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula, and extreme Eastern Cuyahoga Counties now. These showers have weakened a bit and are sliding east at about 25 mph. The rest of the area will remain partly to mostly cloudy thru midnight. Temperatures will slowly fall thru the 40s.
4:00 pm Update: Scattered showers continue to move inland off of Lake Erie. The rain is confined to Lorain, Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, & Ashtabula Counties. A few ice pellets are being reported in these showers as well. Showers will soon be confined to the extrmeme northeast corner of the state and should gradually end after midnight. Temperatures will fall back into the 40s by sunset. Grab the sweater.
Skies will begin to clear out tonight across much of the region, except for the extreme northeast counties. Lows will drop down to between 30 & 35 degrees.
12:01 pm Update: Most of the rain has pushed east and out of Ohio leaving us with layer of clouds. We can't rule out a few showers through the afternoon but the best chance will be downwind of Lake Erie. Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula Counties stand the best chances for rain. We all need to keep the jackets around though, temps will top out in the middle 50s today before dropping back to near freezing overnight. Areas inland will dip into the 20s!
10:00 am Update: Rain has ended in counties west of I-71. Light rain and showers continue east. As the cold front moves into Pennsylvania, expect rain to gradually end over the next hour.
I can't rule out a few lake effect rain showers firing up this afternoon in Cleveland and points east. High temperatures will be cool, in the low 50s with breezy conditions.
