CLEVELAND - 11:00 PM UPDATE: Storms are pushing further southward. We may still see rain and storms but fewer and less intense than thought earlier.
8:20 PM UPDATE: Showers continue moving in our direction from Indiana, but the heavier storms are moving southward, toward Kentucky. We should still end up with some decent rainfall in the overnight/early morning hours.
I'm Power of Five Meteorologist, Elisa Malinovitz with continuing coverage of our weather. We remain on track to see overnight storms. 4-5 AM looks to be prime time for the rain to move in. We'll see a few lingering showers for your morning commute, but then high pressure moves in and we'll see sunshine with a high in the mid 70s.
Afternoon Update: Sunshine will be replaced by clouds in a few hours as a line of storms approaches from the west. These storms will weaken significantly before reaching Northeast Ohio. However, I can't rule out some evening rain near the Islands and Cedar Point.
The Storm Prediction Center has removed Northeast Ohio from the treat of severe weather this evening. The rest of us will have a chance of rain overnight as a cold front passes. Rain will clear by 9 a.m. Friday.

Sunshine is expected for most of the afternoon with increasing clouds this evening. Highs will hit the mid-80s, making it the warmest day of the week.
A cold front will move across the Great Lakes this evening, triggering scattered showers and thunderstorms west of Cleveland. A few of the storms may be strong in NW Ohio before sunset.
Scattered rain will move through the rest of the area overnight and continue early Friday. High pressure will quickly build in behind the front, clearing the sky by noon. Temperatures will be much cooler, in the mid-70s.
Cool weather sticks around for the weekend. Highs will only hit the low 70s Saturday with mid-70s likely Sunday. Look for mostly sunny skies both days.
Temperatures stay comfortable early next week, in the mid-to-upper 70s.
