Forecast: Warmer air moving in for Wednesday

CLEVELAND - Follow Mark on Twitter & Facebook now!

8:00 pm Update: A few cirrus clouds floating overhead right now. Temperatures are cool but comfortable, in the 50s.

Lows tonight will drop into the middle and upper 40s most spots. Clouds will creep in from the west along the leading edge of some warmer air. There is a small chance for an isolated early morning rain shower by dawn tomorrow, mainly across the Lakeshore Counties. This shower chance is highest across Lake, Geauga, & Ashtabula Counties between about 4 am and 8am.

Wednesday should dry out quickly with a mix of clouds and sunshine moving in for the afternoon. Temperatures will warm up into the lower 70s for highs. Sounds like a great day for outdoor yard work.

A cold front moves in early Thursday morning. Rain showers are likely during the morning hours. High temperatures will be reached during the morning in  most spots. They will climb into the middle 60s and then fall back into the 50s during the afternoon. It will be windy as well, with southwest winds between 20 & 35 mph with even higher gusts. The winds will shift around to the west during the afternoon with gusts to near 45 mph possible. A Wind Advisory may be needed for Wednesday night & Thursday.

Clouds are still hanging out across far NE Ohio, where temps are holding in the upper 40s. Sunshine is breaking out across the west, and we'll see highs there move into the middle and even upper 50s.

Clouds will hang tough this morning, with sunshine working in from the west. Where skies clear, temps will be cooler in the upper 30s. Clouds will keep temps elsewhere in the 40s.

Our morning clouds will start to move out as the morning goes on Tuesday. Increasing sunshine will be the story during the morning and into the afternoon. Highs today will reach into the middle 50s, still a few degrees shy of normal.

Clouds will thicken a bit tonight into early Wednesday as a warm front moves through. That will increase our winds and our temps. Highs Wednesday will be warmer than Tuesday. Some spots could easily 70 degrees, before rain arrives late Wednesday into Thursday with slightly cooler temps.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK:

After a mainly dry Thursday afternoon, we'll see the chance at showers return for Friday and into Saturday. Those days won't be washouts, but I cannot rule out a passing shower with highs in the 50s Friday and 60s Saturday.

Sunday should bring dry weather warming temps into the 60s.
