Northeast Ohio weather: Near 40 degrees on Thursday under a mostly cloudy sky

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Drier air has moved in, which has turned off the lake effect machine.

High pressure builds in from the south this afternoon. I went with a dry forecast for the rest of Thursday. A mostly cloudy sky is expected.

There will be breaks in the clouds. Areas east of Cleveland will hang on to a thicker overcast.

Afternoon temperatures were in the middle to upper 30s. There will not be much of a drop in temperature tonight as some milder air will be in place.

High-level clouds will keep us generally cloudy.
