Forecast: Mild weather for Thanksgiving travel and Thanksgiving Day

CLEVELAND - 9:30 pm Update: A weakening cold front will slide east across our area tonight. Clouds accompanying the front a thin, with a few breaks here and there. I'm still not concerned about any real rain with this front. a few isolated sprinkles are possible west of Interstate 77 before midnight. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy this evening with temperatures falling back into the 40s by 7pm. Just a light coat.

Overnight lows will once again fall back to between 35 and 40 degrees by dawn. Clouds will dominate the first half of tonight. But, once the front moves by, we should begin to clear toward daybreak.

Another terrific travel day shaping up for us on Wednesday. Highs will climb back into the middle and upper 50s. We have abundant sunshine greeting motorists all across Ohio.

Thanksgiving Day looks warm! High temperatures could easily touch 60 degrees in many spots. Sunshine will once again be the rule. Great weather for those backyard family football games!

For the shoppers, Thursday night, we'll stay mild and dry with increasing clouds and lows near 40.

Clouds will be with us much of the day as a cold front moves through. We may even see a sprinkle along the way. Highs will run in the middle 50s.

A weak cold front near Chicago will trigger a few showers or sprinkles today. With dry air overhead, I don't expect much wet weather. The best chance for a light shower is west of I-77. 

Despite the cloud cover, high temperatures will hit the mid-50s. Our average high for this time of the year is 49 degrees.

Mostly cloudy skies will linger tonight as the cold front dissipates over Northeast Ohio. Look for low temperatures in the upper 30s.

High pressure building in from the west will gradually clear the sky Wednesday. If you're traveling anywhere in the Midwest, expect partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.

High pressure will bring plentiful sunshine Thanksgiving Day. High temperatures will jump to 60 degrees!

An approaching cold front will trigger showers Friday afternoon and evening, with a few snow showers possible overnight.

As much colder air spills overhead Saturday, lake effect snow showers are possible. Temperatures will drop to the upper 30s this weekend with snow showers ending Saturday night east of Cleveland.
