Freeze warning: It will be colder in Northeast Ohio tonight than it has been since April
Northeast Ohio Weather: Showers around and windy

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A cold front will be moving through our area this afternoon. High pressure will build over the Ohio Valley tonight through Tuesday.

Low pressure from central Canada will move over the northern Great Lakes soon, pushing another cold front across our region Tuesday night into Wednesday.

High pressure will return to the forecast for the end of the work week.

Forecast: Freezing temps take hold in Northeast Ohio

Short Term Forecast:

Good afternoon! It is chilly, windy, and gray out there on this Monday. We’ve had a little rain around too. We’re going to keep a chance for showers in the forecast through 11:00 PM. This is most likely along the lakeshore.

It will be a cold and windy night. Temperatures will fall into the mid 30s by early tomorrow morning. Winds will be sustained from the west at 10 – 15 mph. Winds may gust up to 30 mph overnight.

With clearing skies in the overnight forecast, will we see any frost? It is a possibility, but only where winds are light. This would be most likely southwest of Medina. I would recommend covering your tender vegetation or bringing it inside if you can.

Will We Ever See The Sun Again?

Valid question. It has been super cloudy lately. The sun will return on Tuesday. It will be a gorgeous, Fall day. Temperatures will climb into the upper 50s.

Disclaimer: Short range model guidance is hinting at a few rain showers early tomorrow morning, mainly along the lakeshore from 4:00 AM – 9:00 AM. I am going to keep this in the forecast, but it won’t be an all-day thing.

Mid-Week Rain:

As I mentioned above, another cold front will swing through Tuesday night into Wednesday. This will bring us a few rain showers late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

We should dry out pretty quickly Wednesday afternoon. It will be a chilly, mostly cloudy day. Highs will only top out in the upper 40s. Brr!

A Brief Lull In The Action:

At this time, the end of the work week looks fantastic. We’ll have a lot of sunshine around Thursday and Friday.

Thursday’s high: 50° Friday’s high: 58°

Weekend Outlook:

Unfortunately, our late week high pressure system will be moving east on Friday. So, right now I don’t have the best news for the upcoming weekend.

We could see a few rain showers as early as Friday night. This is subject to change.

Saturday: Cloudy and windy with rain showers. Highs in the low 50s. Sunday: Mostly cloudy and windy with a few rain showers. Highs in the mid 40s.

You may hear some chatter this week about possible snowflakes on Saturday night. If this does happen, it will be most likely in Pennsylvania.

Of course, we’ll keep you updated, but I wouldn’t place any money on that for our area. 😊
