CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - This first day of Spring has been lovely, hasn’t it?

Our official high was 53 degrees, which is actually about five degrees above normal.

Monday will be even warmer.

Temperatures will soar into the low 60s.

The exception to this will be along the lakeshore where temperatures will barely punch into the 50s.

Expect plenty of sunshine to start your week.

The pattern will change on Tuesday evening as rain moves in from our southwest.

Rain will linger all through the day Wednesday.

Thunderstorms may also occur on Wednesday afternoon, some of which will produce strong, gusty winds and heavy rain.

Even outside of the storms, Wednesday will be quite windy, allowing temperatures to surge into the low to mid 60s.

We’ll enjoy a break from the rain on Thursday, and that will be a good day to get outside for some fresh air.

Temperatures will turn colder Friday and into the weekend.

This late-work-week and weekend timeframe will also provide opportunities for occasional rain showers mixing with snow.

Sunday will be the coldest day of the forecast period.

Temperatures will only top out in the 30s.
