Evening Update: The cold front has pushed south allowing dry and much colder air to sink into Ohio. Overnight temps will drop into the lower 30s despite the thick cloud cover. Warm air quickly returning Sunday will bring rain back to Ohio Sunday afternoon. Expect isolated showers early Sunday followed by more widespread light rain Sunday afternoon.
Update: Thick clouds and areas of light rain/drizzle temperatures are still hovering in the upper 40s and lower 50s. We'll dry out tonight as cold air sinks into Ohio. Light jackets and umbrellas needed today but grab the heavy coats for any late night plans.
We have a couple waves of energy pushing through Ohio over the next few days and that means periods of rain, dry-time and even some snow. The first round is pushing through today but don't plan on a washout of a day. In fact, most of our Saturday will be dry, just cloudy and dreary.
Despite the clouds, temperatures will stay mild. Morning temps are in the upper 40s to near 50º and will stay there through the afternoon. High temps will hold near 50º along the lake with lower 50s inland. The mild air will gradually sink south this evening as a a thin line of light rain showers pushes through just after sunset this evening. Temps will drop into the 30s after the brief rain clears out.
It'll only be a brief cool down though, the warm, moist air returns Sunday afternoon with highs near 50º again. We'll stay mainly dry for the first half of Sunday, including most of the Browns game. By the time the Browns are wrapping up their win of the Chiefs, we'll see rain returning to northern Ohio.
This round will last through the overnight hours and into Monday. Expect widespread rain as we kick of the new work-week as temps hover in the 40s. Eventually, late Monday, cold air will rush in. This will end the widespread rain and spark a few lake effect snow bands. Temps Tuesday will stay in the 30s with a potential for significant snow in the snowbelts down wind of Lake Erie. Expect more details on amounts as we get closer.
