Fair weather is expected tonight as the high shifts to our east.

A warm front will lift northward across the state Thursday morning, accompanied by rain showers. The rain showers could be mixed with sleet or snow. Behind the warm front, temperatures will climb to around 50 degrees as milder air streams northward across the area.

A strong cold front will move across northeastern Ohio Thursday night. Showers and even a few thunderstorms are likely late Thursday afternoon through Thursday evening. The combination of heavy rain and melting snow could create flooding issues. This potential will be monitored closely.

Late Thursday night, after the passage of the front, temperatures will fall and rain showers will likely change over to snow showers. Scattered snow showers are possible into Friday morning before high pressure builds back across the area.

Here is the forecast: For today, mostly cloudy this morning, then becoming partly sunny. Highs will be in the mid 40s. Winds S 10-15 mph.

Tonight, partly cloudy with lows in the low to mid 20s. Winds W 5-10 mph.

Thursday, cloudy with rain showers, possibly mixed with sleet or snow through mid day. Then, scattered showers and thunderstorms possible late in the day. Highs will reach the upper 40s to low 50s. Winds SE 10-20 mph.

Thursday night, showers and thunderstorms likely during the evening, then a chance of snow showers late. Lows will fall into the mid 30s.

Friday, partly cloudy with a chance of snow showers during the morning. Highs will be around 40 degrees.

Looking ahead: A weak system will move across the area on Saturday bringing the chance of light snow. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 30s to low 40s.

It will turn colder for Sunday and Monday with mostly cloudy skies and a chance of snow showers. Highs on Sunday will be around 30 with highs falling back into the mid 20s on Monday.
