A Flood Watch is in effect through Sunday night for heavy rains during the day on Sunday. With the snow melt, the added rain could cause some flooding issues.

 * RAIN WILL OVERSPREAD THE AREA SATURDAY NIGHT AND BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES   SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND SUNDAY EVENING. RUNOFF FROM RECENT RAINFALL   AND SNOW MELT WILL COMBINE WITH ADDITIONAL RAINFALL OF AN INCH   TO AN INCH AND A HALF THROUGH SUNDAY TO INCREASE THE POTENTIAL   FOR FLOODING TO OCCUR.  * LOW LYING AREAS AND SMALL STREAMS ARE ALREADY EXPERIENCING HIGH   WATER IN MANY PLACES. HEAVY RAIN IS SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND SUNDAY   EVENING. FLOODING MAY DEVELOP IN LOW-LYING AREAS AND SMALL   STREAMS AND EVENTUALLY SPREAD INTO LARGER CREEKS AND RIVERS.   RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES NEAR WATERWAYS SHOULD BE ON THE ALERT   FOR RISING WATER THROUGH THE DAY ON SUNDAY. 

 

We're seeing sun and clouds this afternoon and temps are already into the low 60s. Colder air and rain moves in overnight and Sunday.

 

No major records fell Saturday. Highs ran in the upper 50s and low 60s.

Cleveland - Saturday High: 61. Record: 65.

Akron-Canton - Saturday High: 60. Record: 64.

Mansfield - Saturday High: 61. Record: 60.

Toledo - Saturday High: 58. Record: 64.

Youngstown - Saturday High: 60. Record - 64.

 

Mild air moving in for your Saturday will set the stage for heavy rain Sunday. So enjoy the dry time today! We'll see highs near 60º this afternoon despite the mainly cloudy sky. Overnight the wet weather returns of northern Ohio.

 

A cold front will swing through Ohio bringing heavy rain. The heavy rain in addition to the snowmelt and the already soaked ground will cause flooding across much of Ohio. We'll start Sunday rainy and in the 50s with a gradual drop throughout the day. We'll end the weekend in the 30s!

 

The cold air settles back into Ohio for much of the workweek with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s until late next week. Even colder air rushes in from the north dropping temps even more. We'll likely end January with temperatures reaching into the negatives! Likely the coldest air we've seen in years!
