THURSDAY EVENING UPDATE: A cool and quiet night for Northern Ohio. Skies are clearing out for the most part tonight. This will allow our temperatures to cool back into the 30s inland and lower 40s closer to Lake Erie by Sunrise.

Friday looks dry and seasonable. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny with high temperatures near 58. That's just a couple of clicks below the normal high of 60 for this time of year.

You'll stay dry Friday evening and overnight. Skies will be partly cloudy. Low temperatures fall back into the middle 40s by sunrise. You will need the warm attire for the High School Football Games.

A weakening front moves into Ohio on Saturday. Clouds will increase during the day, but the threat for a rain shower is very slim. Highs will climb up to near 65 degrees. A good day to get out and rake leaves or put up Holiday lighting displays.

Sunday will be slightly cooler but still dry for the Browns Game. Looks for a partly cloudy sky, breezy northwest winds and high temperatures in the middle and upper 50s.

AFTERNOON UPDATE: Clouds and a cool northwest breeze are keeping us on the chilly side today. Keep the jackets handy. This evening, if you're headed to check out the Partial Solar Eclipse you'll need a jacket. The good news is that you won't have many issues with visibility. A few high clouds expected but it should be too bad. Enjoy and post your photos to our facebook pages! Links are above.

THURSDAY UPDATE:

Partly cloudy and chilly with temperatures in the 40s still at 9am.  Thanks to the sun, it will feel better this afternoon as temperatures warm into the middle 50s but a breezy NW wind keeps temperatures below average.  60s still on track to return on Saturday.

THURSDAY FORECAST:

Breaks in the clouds this morning and colder temperatures are here because of it .  Morning lows in the lower 40s by sunrise, with a few spots touching already in the upper 30s.

Now to talk SUNSHINE!  Today looks partly to mostly sunny area-wide. Because of a northerly breeze, temperatures will stay below normal though. Highs will reach into the middle 50s this afternoon.

A weakening front will slide into Northern Ohio early Friday. That will mean mostly cloudy skies tomorrow morning and a VERY small rain shower threat. Highs will hang in the middle and upper 50s!

Saturday is your warmest weekend day. Highs will climb into the lower and middle 60s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.  There is also a small chance for a shower or two on Saturday but many us will remain dry.

Sunday will be cooler for the Browns Game. Afternoon temperatures will sit in the upper 50s under a partly cloudy sky.

Best next rain/storm chance arrives late Tuesday into Wednesday.
