Forecast: Highs in the 50s thru Wednesday

CLEVELAND - 10:00 pm Update:  Dense fog is being reported already in the Akron/Canton area as well as from Toledo to Findlay to the Lake Erie Islands. Visibilities are already down to 1/4 mile. I would expect many school delays and slow travel across Northern Ohio Tuesday morning!

9:00 pm Update: Warm air is moving over a very cold snow pack across Northern Ohio right now. Temperatures tonight will drop into the middle 40s. Patchy dense fog is likely tonight, especially over areas where the snow has been heavy over the past week. Visibility will likely drop below 1/2 mile at times. Drive safely tonight!

More mild air surging in for Tuesday. High temperatures will climb into the upper 50s. A few isolated rain showers will move in after 10 am. Skies will be mostly cloudy thru the day.

Another arctic cold front will arrive on Wednesday, quickly pushing out the mild air and ushering in more cold and snow. The front will arrive during the early to mid afternoon hours. Ahead of the front I expect a line of heavy rain and thunderstorms around midday. Although the storms will not be severe, they could produce some brief gusty winds to 35 mph. Highs during the morning will be in the middle and upper 50s. Temperatures will fall back into the 40s by the evening commute.
