CLEVELAND - 10:00 pm Update: Cold weather pattern remains in place this weekend. You'll be able to put away the rain gear, but you will need your warm coats. Lows tonight will drop back into the middle 30s most sports. Skies will remain mostly cloudy with a few isolated sprinkles/flurries, mainly east of Cleveland.
Saturday should be dry. We will see a few peeks of sunshine in amongst the clouds. Highs will struggle back into the middle 40s.
More cold for Saturday night at temperatures fall back into the upper 20s and lower 30s. Partly cloudy skies are likely area-wide.
More of the same on Sunday. Highs in the middle 40s. Patchy clouds will mix with sunshine thru the day. Bundle up for the Browns Game!
For the voters: Monday should be dry. Temperatures in the middle 40s again. Election Day looks dry as well. We see high near 47 degrees under a partly cloudy sky.
4:00 pm Update: A chilly evening as rain fades away. The majority of Sandy's rains have moved out of here. There are still a few isolated brief rain showers across Ashtabula, Trumbull, Stark, Medina and Summit Counties. There could even be a wet snowflake mixing in. Those showers should end by 6pm, leaving us with dry conditions for high school play-off football action. You will need your coats to stay warm. Temperatures will hover in the 35 to 40 degree range during the games.
12:06 pm Update: Temperatures are staying chilly with areas along the lake checking in near 40 and 30s inland. We still have that northwest wind supplying a lake effect rain band this afternoon. As the rain moves south and into colder air we may even see a few snow flakes. Most of Northern Ohio is dry though and will stay dry through the evening. Bundle up though because temps will drop quickly into the 30s after sunset.
Sandy is still affecting our weather as we wrap up the work-week. We are on the back side of Sandy and our cool northwest breeze is sticking around. As long as we have that cool air blowing over our warm Lake Erie, we will have to keep the chance for isolated showers in the forecast.
The cool north wind will also keep us on the cool side. For the next several days, we will keep temps in the 40s for afternoon highs and mornings in the 30s! Keep the coats and sweater son and get prepared for an even colder shot of air toward the end of next week. The models are starting to hint at cold air rushing into Ohio and the potential for Lake Effect snow toward the end of next week. We will keep you updated on that system as it gets closer.
