Northeast Ohio weather: Closing in on 70 degrees Wednesday

Forecast: Mild weather and showers expected this week

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Low pressure over the Plains has pushed a warm front into our area today. This front will linger through Wednesday. Meanwhile, the aforementioned low will move east along the front on Wednesday, entering the Great Lakes region on Thursday. A secondary area of low pressure will develop over the southern Plains on Thursday. This feature will move through the Ohio Valley on Friday and linger into the weekend.

Short Term Forecast:

Good afternoon! We began the day on a rather cloudy note; however, some sunshine has finally begun to break out around the region. Temperatures aren’t too bad either! Most of us have managed to warm well into the 60s. A few spots will hit 70° before sunset.

If you’re planning for tonight, plan for partly cloudy skies and overnight lows around 47°. Remember, the overnight low will not occur until very early tomorrow morning. That means we will actually spend most of our evening in the 50s. Woohoo!

We may see a few passing showers overnight (after midnight), but nothing major.

Wednesday’s Weather:

If you’re enjoying today’s rather quiet weather, you’ll love tomorrow’s forecast. We will wake up to a little patchy fog, but the fog should lift by mid-morning.

Most of the day will be partly to mostly cloudy and calm. A few passing showers are possible after 2:00 PM.

Temperature-wise, we’ll top out around 70°. Lakeshore areas may get stuck in the upper 50s and lower 60s later in the day.

Short Lived Heat Wave:

I don’t know about you but I am loving this week’s warmth. We’ll be getting even warmer Thursday. Highs will top out around 80°.

Scattered showers and storms will be possible during the evening. If you’re out enjoying the nice weather, be sure to head inside if you hear thunder.

Holiday Weekend Forecast:

Cooler weather will move in quickly for the holiday weekend.

Good Friday: Scattered rain. Highs in the mid 50s.

Saturday: A few showers. Highs in the mid 50s.

Easter Sunday: Chance of a morning shower. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.
