CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - High pressure over the Upper Midwest will be our main weather-maker through the weekend, keeping the Great Lakes region dry.

In fact, we’re going to be dry all the way through the middle of next week!

I don’t know what we did to deserve this remarkable January stretch of dry weather, but I’ll take it!

In the short term, temperatures will fall into the upper 20s tonight.

This will be our eighth night this month with above-average temperatures.

Typical overnight lows for this time of the year are in the low 20s.

(It actually looks like our overnight lows will be above average through the 15th. What a stretch!)

The forecast remains mostly unchanged through the weekend.

Expect highs in the mid 30s.

While there will be clouds around through the weekend, I do think we will see at least a little sun from time to time.

Statistically speaking, this is one of our cloudiest months of the year.

It’s hard to promise sunshine in January, but I think a few peeks of it are reasonable for this upcoming weekend.

The weather from Monday through Wednesday will be very similar to what we will experience this weekend, but I think we’ll see a little more sunshine, especially Tuesday and Wednesday.

Our next system will arrive late Thursday night into Friday.

This will bring us a wintry mix of rain and snow on Thursday night and snow showers on Friday.

It does look as if we will see some lake effect snow next Saturday.

Stay tuned!
