THURSDAY EVENING UPDATE: Clouds will continue to move in and thicken up from the west this evening and overnight. Rain showers will also move in by sunrise from west to east. Low temperatures tonight will fall back to near 45 degrees.

Expect scattered rain showers during the day on Friday as low pressure drags a cold front into the area by evening. Skies will be mostly cloudy. Highs will climb up to near 60 during the afternoon.

Isolated showers are still possible in a few spots on Saturday. Highs will vary thanks to a northeast wind off of Lake Erie. Temperatures will reach into the lower 50s away from the lake, but, stay stuck in the middle and upper 40s within 10 miles or so from the lake shore.

Previous = AFTERNOON UPDATE: Clouds moving in as temps warm into the upper 50s this afternoon. Those clouds will lead to rain Friday but plan on a dry Thursday. Tonight we'll hold on to some of our warmth as we only drop into the 40s. Plan on rain moving in early Friday.

The rain will linger through much of our Friday with the best shot at thunder and heavier rain early in the afternoon. Make sure you check back often for updates on timing of this rain. 

THURSDAY FORECAST:

More clouds today as a warm front rolls through but we should stay on the dry side. Plan on temperatures warming to the upper 50s, some spots touch 60º. The rain holds off until Friday so as clouds remain thick tonight, we stay mild. Only 40s tonight. 

Rain pushes in early Friday and sticks around most of the day. Plan on a rumble of thunder in the afternoon at temps warm into the 60s.
