CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Another day we’re seeing some sunshine in 70s! Wahoo! Big changes move in overnight through Friday.

We're tracking a system that is going to move through overnight. We do have a few favorable ingredients for stronger storms to develop overnight, especially west of Cleveland closer to Toledo.

The only thing we’re really missing is daytime heating, but there will be some “storm fuel” in the atmosphere that could fire up storms with damaging winds, heavy rain, and hail.

TIMING will be before midnight through 3 AM.

There will be a few lingering showers through Friday AM, but most of the day should be dry with falling temperatures. We'll start the day in the 60s and stay in the mid 50s through most of the afternoon and evening. Rain and storm chances return very late Friday night into early Saturday morning.

Ah, the weekend forecast. We've been watching a pesky front that will make the difference on what temperatures we see both Saturday and Sunday. Right now, things are trending warmer, but Lake Erie always likes to throw us a curve ball!

For now, we're going with lingering showers in the morning Saturday with a stray storm in the afternoon. Expect temperatures in the middle to upper 70s with warmer highs south.

Sunday, as long as the lake breeze plays nice, expect to see quite a few 80s on the board, with showers and storms developing late.
