Low pressure will move eastward across the Great Lakes today, dragging a cold front eastward across northeastern Ohio. It will be mild today as warmer air flows northward ahead of the front. There could be a few rain showers as well.
As the front moves across the area early this afternoon, winds will become strong and gusty with gusts in excess of 45 mph possible. Colder air behind the front will change any lingering rain showers to snow showers by this evening. Temperatures will rise to the mid to upper 40s this morning, then fall into the 30s this afternoon.
Colder air will continue to spread across the area tonight with scattered snow showers possible, especially across the snow belt. It will remain windy as well. Lows tonight will be in the mid 20s.
Tuesday will be partly cloudy and breezy with a few lingering snow showers across the snow belt during the morning. Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 30s.
Tuesday night will be partly to mostly cloudy with lows in the mid 20s.
On Wednesday, a storm over the southern Plains is forecast to track northeast toward the Mid Atlantic states. Models differ on how far north the precipitation will reach. Most of the models keep the snow south of the area, however there has been a northward trend in the recent model runs. If this trend continues, we could see some snow on Wednesday. For now, we will just call for mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 30s.
High pressure will build back across the region Wednesday night and Thursday with highs around 40 degrees expected.
