CLEVELAND - 6:00 pm Update: Power of 5 Doppler Network radar is filling up with rain shower again across western Ohio. They are lining up along a weak cold front currently stretching from near Cleveland southwest to Findlay. The front will slowly creep southeast across Northern Ohio and then stall out near Columbus on Saturday. Rain showers will overspread the area this evening and scattered showers will continue on and off all night long. Evening temperatures will hover in the 40s with overnight lows staying mild...generally lower to middle 40s.
Surface low pressure will slide northeast across the North Coast early Saturday. Scattered showers will continue through Saturday morning. Once the low shifts east of the state, we should enjoy several dry hours during the afternoon. Skies will remain cloudy for the most part. High temperatures will range between 45 & 50 degrees during the day.
Saturday night looks dry and cold for most of the area. An isolated rain shower could sneak in across Lake Erie into the northeaster counties Saturday evening and overnight. The rest of the region should see partly to mostly cloudy skies with lows in the 30s.
The stalled cold front will shift back north as a warm front early Sunday. Sunday's skies will be mostly cloudy. Mild temperatures will bounce in from the south behind the front. High temperatures Sunday will climb into the lower and middle 50s. Rain showers will gradually fill back in across the region during the mid to late afternoon hours, but they will be widely scattered. Prepare for a brief shower for the Browns Game Sunday, But, do not be surprised if the showers don't affect downtown Cleveland until evening or after. Enjoy!
12:39 pm Update: Grab the umbrella ss you head out for any afternoon activities, we can't rule out a few raindrops. The steady rain will hold off until closer to our PM commute though. Temperatures will slowly warm into the upper 40s despite the thick clouds.
9:00 a.m. Update: After a brief break, showers are moving in from the west again this morning. Expect scattered light rain through noon, especially in southern counties. Steadier rain arrives this evening after 7 p.m. and continues overnight.
Rain is quickly moving east this morning with mild temperatures near 40 degrees. Spotty areas of light rain will continue through the morning rush.
Expect a break in the wet weather this afternoon before a cold front approaches this evening. The front will trigger more scattered showers through early Saturday. Overnight lows will be warm, around 43 degrees.
After showers gradually end Saturday morning, most of Saturday afternoon and evening will be dry. Highs will hit the upper 40s.
A stronger storm system arrives Sunday, bringing rain after dark. Rain is likely Monday, ending as a mix of rain and snow Monday night.
I can't rule out lake effect snow showers Tuesday, but right now it doesn't look like a widespread chance. Highs will hover in the 30s Tuesday and Wednesday. Dry weather builds in at the end of next week.
