CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The forecast for the next few days is very interesting, to say the least.

Our next big weather system is going to arrive Wednesday.

We’ve issued an ALERT for a wintry mix Wednesday morning.

This will bring us a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow in the morning. It could create slick travel on untreated surfaces.

As temperatures gradually rise through the day, we’ll transition to all rain by midday.

Periods of rain will continue through the afternoon, and combined with air temperatures in the 30s during the afternoon, this will make for a very raw day.

Rain will depart very late Wednesday night, allowing temperatures to soar!

Wednesday’s highs will actually occur around 11:00 p.m. with mid 40s across Cuyahoga County and 50s and 60s south of our lakeshore counties.

If you’ll recall, this also happened last week!

By Thursday morning, temperatures will have fallen into the upper 30s.

Warm air will, once again, push in from the south on Thursday afternoon.

After a cool start to the day, highs will climb into the mid and upper 60s.

Skies will slowly clear through the day.

Another burst of cold air will plunge in Thursday night, and temperatures will plummet into the low 20s by Friday morning.

We’ll likely remain in the 20s all day Friday.

High winds will make it feel as if it’s in the single digits and teens all day.

Is anyone else suffering from weather whiplash after reading that? (I know I am!)

Temperatures will gradually moderate through the weekend.

Expect highs in the low 40s on Saturday and Sunday.

This will be the final weekend of February, and what an interesting month of weather it’s been.

Check out the latest statistics.

If we don’t accumulate any snow at Cleveland Hopkins before next Wednesday, this February will be the least snowiest February ever in Cleveland.
