An upper level trough will swing eastward across the area this morning, producing clouds and a few showers. High pressure will build across the region this afternoon and skies should clear allowing for some decent sunshine for the second half of the day.
High pressure will become firmly in control of the weather across northeastern Ohio tonight through the weekend. It will be dry with comfortable temperatures through the period.
Here is the forecast: For today, cloudy this morning with a slight chance of a shower, then partly sunny this afternoon with highs in the mid 70s. Winds NE 10-15 mph.

Extended Analysis: High pressure over the eastern Great Lakes on Sunday, will shift to our south and east Sunday night. The return flow on the back side of the high will pump increasing amounts of moisture northward across the area Monday and Tuesday.
With the added moisture will come the threat of a few showers and thunderstorms Monday and Monday night. There will be a better chance of showers and storms by Tuesday as low pressure begins to deepen across the Great Lakes.
