A slow moving low pressure system will rotate southeast into Ohio Friday afternoon. Friday morning's rush hour will be dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Showers will arrive out of the southwest during the afternoon and linger through Friday night and Saturday morning. High temperatures should climb back up into the upper 50s and lower 60s areawide Friday.
Scattered showers are likely Friday evening and Friday night. Lows will drop into the 40s. Friday night high school football games could get soggy, so take the warm coats and the rain gear.
Saturday showers should fade by early afternoon, leaving us with a partly to mostly cloudy afternoon sky. Highs will hang in the middle 50s during the day.
Partly cloudy skies should allow for viewing the Orionid Meteor Shower Saturday night and early Sunday morning!
4:00 pm Update: Back edge of the isolated rain showers is now along Interstate 71. Rain should move steadily east and out of the area. Rain will be east of Cleveland/Akron/Canton by 5pm. Rain should be east of the state by 8pm. The only exception will be an isolated shower popping up over Erie, Huron, Ottawa, Sandusky, & Seneca Counties between 7pm & 9pm tonight. Evening temperatures will slowly fall through the 50s this evening. Winds will quiet down as well. Skies should become partly cloudy tonight as drier air works in. Low temperatures will drop into the lower and middle 40s by dawn Friday.
12:54 pm Update: The cold front is racing east, pushing these storms at about 30mph. The line will continue east and out of Ohio by you drive home. The roads are wet though so drive safely. Temperatures are also dropping quickly after the cold front passes your area, a quick 10º drop is likely.
Sunshine is returning to the west and will help temperatures rebound a bit but 60º may be all we can get back to. Expect a mainly dry evening as temps drop into the 40s overnight.
10:57 am Update: A line of heavy rain is pushing across NE OH at 35mph. Expect gusts up to 50 mph in front of this line followed by brief heavy rain and a few rumbles of thunder. This line should push through each area in about an hour so expect a drying trend throughout the evening.
8:25 am Update: Rain is now entering our far western counties. Mansfield will see it first followed by Sandusky and Ashland. Rain will be approaching the I-77 corridor closer to noon.
A slow moving storm system will continue to impact Ohio for the next couple days. Temperatures will stay on the cooler side thanks to clouds and several opportunities for rain. The first impact we felt yesterday was the wind and the warm-up, the cold front pushes through today. Along the cold front we will see a line of rain showers pushing through.
The first areas to get rain will be the western counties closer to sunrise. By midday, the I-77 corridor will start to see rain moving in and by evening we will se the last showers pushing out of Ohio. This will be an entirely day time event but don't expect a washout of a Thursday! The further west you are, the sooner you will dry out and the opposite for our eastern counties. The rain will hold off until the afternoon for most areas east of I-77.
The cold front will be through by tonight as dry air moves in but rain will stay in the forecast through Friday. Showers are likely through parts of northeast Ohio Friday afternoon and evening. Expect a similar forecast for your Saturday before we warm up and dry out Sunday.
