High pressure is now centered east of the area. Milder air will continue to stream northward across the region on the back side of that high. Meanwhile, a weak cold front will move across the state from the west today. Originally, this front was expected to washout or move through dry, however, moisture has pooled ahead of this front and has become sufficient to produce a few rain showers. These showers will cross the area this morning, lasting into the early afternoon hours before clearing out. A few areas in the east could see a little freezing rain this morning before temperatures climb above freezing. Precipitation amounts are expected to be very light with most locations receiving less than a tenth of an inch of rainfall.
Skies will become partly sunny this afternoon once the front moves east of the area. High temperatures today will reach the mid 40s.
Tonight will be partly cloudy with overnight lows in the 20s.
A storm system is forecast to move northward through the Mississippi Valley on Thursday. This feature will spread clouds across the area during the day on Thursday with rain showers arriving by evening. High temperatures on Thursday will be in the low to mid 40s.
Rain showers will become widespread across the region Thursday night with overnight lows dipping to the mid to upper 30s.
The storm over the Mississippi Valley will move through the Great Lakes on Friday, passing well to our west. Friday will be rainy and mild across northeastern Ohio with highs reaching the low 50s.
Once that storm passes by, weak high pressure will build across the area. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower. It will be quite mild with highs reaching the mid to upper 50s. A few spots could reach 60 degrees on Saturday.
