THURSDAY UPDATE:

Aside from a few random flakes Thursday night - we'll be mainly quiet and cold with lows in the upper 20s and low 30s. Friday will be more of the same with chilly temps only the low 30s.

Most of us have seen rain, snow or both today, but the precipitation is moving out and should be gone by this evening. The colder air will remain, and be reinforced by another front moving through tonight. This will mean scattered snow for Friday with a high on Friday of only 30 and a low in the teens. Our normal high for this time of year is 51. Of course a late March snow event isn't uncommon. The colder air should subside by Sunday with a return to near normal temperatures. 

THURSDAY FORECAST:

Fog, mist and widespread rain for the start of your Thursday morning. Temperatures near sunrise, our warmest part of the day, was at 42 degrees.  

Our rain maker, a cold front, will slide in close from the north during the morning hours today. Rain showers will change over to snow for a few hours around midday, mainly in the counties closest to Lake Erie. The precipitation should stay all rain farther south toward Route 224 and Route 30. The rain and snow should end by mid afternoon in most spots. Temperatures will hover in the mid and upper 30s during the afternoon.

Much colder air will settle into Northern Ohio for Friday and Saturday. Highs on Friday will struggle up in to the lower 30s with snow flurries especially close to the lake.

Saturday looks cold and dry with highs in the upper 20s.
