CLEVELAND - Stay in touch with me on Twitter @MarkJweather
9:30 pm Update: Rain showers and thunderstorms are pushing toward Toledo, Fremont, Findlay and Sandusky. They should arrive there by 10 pm. Elsewhere, showers are farther south. So, again, most of the area will stay dry until well after midnight tonight. Newest rainfall estimates show between 1/4-inch to 1-inch of rain fall tonight thru Tuesday afternoon for Northern Ohio.
6:38 pm Update: Cloudy skies will be the rule tonight. Rain showers currently crossing the Ohio River now heading north. Won't arrive in most spots until the wee hours of the morning Tuesday. Lows tonight near 60 degrees.
Rain is likely Tuesday, especially during the morning hours. Low pressure moving into the Ohio Valley from the south will combine with a cold front moving in from the west to keep rain chances high even during the afternoon. Clouds will hang on thru the day. High temperatures most spots won't make it out of the middle 60s during the afternoon.
Rain will end areawide early Wednesday morning. Some sunshine will mix with the clouds during the day. Temperatures will remain cool: between 60 & 65 degrees during the afternoon. Grab the sweaters!
3:50 pm Update: Dry weather will be the rule through this evening. Showers will begin to arrive tonight: after 10 pm for our southern counties and after midnight along the lake shore. Clouds will thicken up in the meantime this evening with temperatures hovering in the 70s thru 7pm.
Sunny skies will prevail this afternoon with highs near 77 degrees. Expect increasing high clouds from the south this evening. If you're headed to the Ashland or Tuscarawas County Fair, the weather will be perfect!
Clouds thicken overnight as low pressure moves up the Ohio Valley. Rain is likely overnight, especially in our southeastern counties. Periods of rain will last through the Tuesday morning commute.
Showers will end by noon Tuesday as a cold front passes. Highs will drop to the mid-60s behind the front.
I can't rule out a few lake effect rain showers late Tuesday and Wednesday east of Cleveland, however most areas will be dry. Wednesday will be the coolest day of the week with highs in the low 60s.
Temperatures rebound to 70 degrees Thursday under mostly sunny skies.
An approaching cold front will bring our next chance of rain Friday evening. Unsettled weather remains this weekend with another chance of showers Sunday. Weekend temperatures will only hit the low-to-mid 60s.
