CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Low pressure has been developing over Lake Michigan today. It will move northeast through the central Great Lakes through this evening.

High pressure will build northeast out of the central Plains to Pennsylvania by Wednesday night.

Another low pressure system will move northeast to James Bay by Thursday night. This will push a cold front east across our area on Friday.
