THURSDAY EVENING UPDATE: Skies will be mostly clear tonight as chilly air continues to spill in from the north. Low temperatures will fall back into the 50s area-wide, except right along the Lake Erie Shoreline. 60s there.
Skies will be mostly sunny on Friday. Winds will shift around to the southwest during the morning. That should allow warmer temps to invade the area. I expect high temperatures throughout Northern Ohio to climb up to between 75 & 80 degrees.
A few storms will arrive across the area Friday night, after midnight. Skies will cloud up a bit as well with lows between 60 & 65.
Previous Discussion = AFTERNOON UPDATE: The low, thick clouds over the lake are moving south and inland. Plan on more sunshine starting from the north then spreading south. Despite the sunshine, we'll struggle to warm much more. Afternoon highs will only be in the lower and middle 70s. That's about 10º below normal!
We rebound Friday but clouds come back late in the day. That's in advance of Saturday's storm potential. Lower 80s with storms expected both Saturday and Sunday.
Thursday brings another day of cooler than normal weather. Highs will climb only into the lower and middle 70s during the afternoon. Skies should remain partly to mostly sunny.
Friday brings more sunshine and a few additional degrees on the thermometer. We'll stay dry as well until evening, when a few thunderstorms will likely move in from the west. Highs Friday will climb into the upper 70s.
