Evening Update: We can't rule out a few showers overnight as a weak wave pushes through. Temperatures will cool quickly overnight with a few breaks in the clouds. By sunrise, temps will be in the lower 50 with a few upper 40s away from the lake. Through out Sunday, temps will stay in the 60s to near 70 with periods of showers. As the day rolls on, the chance for rain will taper off as high pressure slides in. Expect more sunshine and a gradual warm-up through the next work week.
Afternoon Update: Temperatures have remain on the cooler side today as we are just now getting into the upper 60s. Keeping the temps cool is the breezy northwest wind with gusts to 25mph. It'll stay breezy all day with a scattered shower possible this evening.
Midday Update: The Power of 5 Radar Network will be much quieter this afternoon. Winds are gusting higher than 20 mph across much of northeast Ohio already and will continue to stay gusty all day. As the winds gust over Lake Erie, we can't rule out scattered lake effect showers through the day. This trend will continue into Sunday evening. If you have plans outdoors, bring the jacket and the umbrellas because brief showers are likely area-wide.
Plan for a mainly wet weekend as cooler, fall-like air tries to push into Ohio. Temperatures all weekend will stay in the 60s with clouds and periods of rain. The heaviest rain has already pushed through early this morning leaving up to 2" of rain in some locations.
Throughout the rest of the weekend, any extra rain that falls will add up to less than an inch. As winds shift more out of the northwest, scattered showers are likely to continue through the weekend. The Browns season opener is Sunday at 1pm. Bring the rain gear, ponchos and umbrellas because this wet weather will continue into your Sunday.
