FRIDAY NIGHT FORECAST UPDATE:  Weak cold front will slide south of Ohio overnight, allowing high pressure to build in rapidly for the weekend. We will stay dry overnight with skies clearing out rapidly as drier air works in from the north. Lows will drop into the middle 30s by sunrise.

Saturday will stay sunny. High temperatures inland will climb back up to between 55 & 60 degrees during the afternoon. For those of you who live nearer to Lake Erie, cool northeast breezes will keep temperatures hovering in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Warmer weather will arrive on Sunday. After a cool sunrise with temperatures in the 30s, thermometers should warm up to near 70 degrees by mid afternoon Sunday. Skies will remain mostly sunny. Have a safe weekend!

Previous: AFTERNOON UPDATE: A stray shower possible this afternoon as our cold front slowly slides through NE OH. Plan on a mix of sun and clouds along with mild temperatures in the lower 60s until sunset. Then temps fall quickly. We'll be in the upper 30s and lower 40s by Saturday morning as we clear our sky out. 

FRIDAY FORECAST: 

Clouds helping our morning temperatures stay well above average in the mid and upper 40s. Your Friday looks mild again with temperatures climbing back up to near 60. That's normal for this time of year. Skies will cloud up ahead of the next weak cold front that will arrive this afternoon. Isolated rain showers are possible but very small rain amounts are expected with most of us staying dry.

Saturday will be dry and cool. Highs between 50 & 55 degrees.

Easter Sunday looks fantastic! Mostly sunny with highs near 70! Enjoy & Happy Easter!
