First Alert Weather Day: Damaging winds, rain Tuesday

Forecast: Winds die down, dry weather expected Wednesday and Thursday

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - From Meteorologist Jeff Tanchak:

A Wind Advisory is in effect for Lorain, Cuyahoga, and Lake County until 10PM this evening. Breezy conditions will continue through Wednesday with wind gusts up to 30 MPH expected. High pressure will start to build in across the Ohio River Valley towards the end of the work week, before another system arrives just in time for the weekend to bring us a BLAST of cold air and our first chance for snow this season!

Next Few Days:

Overnight Tuesday clouds will start to clear out a bit, allowing for temps to drop into the low 40s. Breezy conditions continue through your Wednesday with SW winds 15-25 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH. We will see some peaks of sunshine through the day tomorrow and the BEST part is, we won't be dealing with any rain!

Rain should hold off through most of our Thursday as well. Wake up temperatures Thursday morning will be colder, hovering a few degrees above freezing. Highs in the afternoon will top off in the middle 40s. Clouds will start moving in through the day along with the chance for rain late Thursday evening.

COLDER air (and SNOW) is coming:

Rain will continue through your Friday as we watch another system move in. Depending on where this system wants to track through NE Ohio will greatly impact where and who sees some sleet/snow mix late Friday into Saturday. Right now it's looking like the lakeshore has the best chance of seeing some snow mixed in.

If you’re disappointed about not getting in on the fun Friday night, don’t worry! There’s another pretty good chance heading into the start of next week that we see some snow flurries. Too early to talk about accumulations, but with this punch of cold air hanging out through the next week or so, we’ve all got a chance to see some flakes. Stay tuned!
