THURSDAY UPDATE:

Lake effect light rain picked up in the 6 o'clock hour this morning and remained light throughout much of the morning commute.  We have a wind shift early this afternoon and by then we will have shut off the light rain.

Bigger story is the chilly temperatures.  We are nearly 10 degrees below average this afternoon with shivering little ones for Thursday trick-or-treating if they choose not to wear a jacket.  Friday still looking wet and cold for our actual Halloween festivities. 

THURSDAY FORECAST:

A few lake effect rain showers will continue across Northern Ohio this morning. Skies will be cloudy area-wide. Low temperatures will drop to near 40 by sunrise.

Your Thursday remains mostly cloudy. I can't rule out an isolated rain shower during the morning hours east of Cleveland. Afternoon high temperatures will climb up to near 50 degrees.

Another cold front moves in Friday morning. Rain showers are likely during the day. Scattered showers will linger into the evening hours for your Trick or Treat plans and high school football games. A wet snow flake or two may mix in  with rain after sunset. Friday highs will reach into the middle and upper 40s.

The most recent models suggesting less snow, more rain.  Snow accumulations not expected here at home but could be a bit more possible well west.  There is a small chance for a few snow flakes late on Saturday night now as well as into early Sunday morning. Again no accumulations but a bit more lake enhanced chance.
