High pressure will build across northeastern Ohio today, then shift to the east of the area tonight and Tuesday. We will see plenty of sunshine today with temperatures warming to the mid 50s.

Tonight will be fair and cool.

On Tuesday, a strong southwesterly flow of milder air will develop across the Ohio Valley and eastern Great Lakes. This will help to boost temperatures well into the 60s with some locations possibly reaching 70 degrees during the afternoon.

A cold front will move across the area late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, bringing clouds and the threat of rain showers. It will also usher in another seasonably cool air mass for mid week.

Here is the forecast: For today, it will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 50s. Winds light and variable.

Monday night, partly cloudy with lows in the mid to upper 30s. Winds light and variable.

Tuesday, partly sunny and breezy with highs reaching the mid to upper 60s. Winds SE 15-25 mph.

Tuesday night, mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Lows will be in the mid to upper 30s.

Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs will be around 50.

Extended Analysis: A cold front will move south of the area Wednesday night, becoming nearly stationary near the Ohio River. Waves of low pressure will track east along the front Thursday and Friday bringing us a prolonged period of cool, damp weather.

By late Friday or Friday night, a stronger cold front will move across the region. In the wake of this front, colder air will bring a mix of rain and snow showers Friday night through early Saturday.

High pressure and drier air will bring an end to the precipitation by Saturday afternoon.

Here is the extended forecast: Wednesday night, mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Lows will be in the upper 30s.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Highs will be in the mid 40s.
