CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The 19 First Alert Weather Team has issued 19 First Alert Weather Days for tonight, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

A cold front will move through northern Ohio this evening, ushering in the coldest air of the season to-date.

For many inland communities, this will put an end to the growing season.

A sprawling area of low pressure has set up over the Great Lakes, facilitating the development lake effect rain.

This will continue, off and on, through Wednesday.

Rain will mix with snow and graupel from time to time.

Given the early-season dynamics in place, some thunder may even occur this evening!

Gusty winds will move over the area through Wednesday.

Winds may gust upwards of 35 to 40 mph at times.

Along the eastern lakeshore, a Wind Advisory has been issued for tonight, due to the threat of 45 mph winds.

Temperature-wise, it’s going to be quite cold through Wednesday.

The 19 First Alert Weather Team is forecasting highs in the 40s Tuesday and Wednesday.

Typical highs this time of the year are in the low 60s.

Blessedly, this early-week Wintry pattern will be a distant memory by Thursday, as the low pressure system moves away.

Sunshine will return in full-force by the end of the work week.

Temperatures will warm into the 60s by Friday.

Some spots will hit 70 degrees by Sunday.
