CLEVELAND — It’s the first day of spring today and temperatures reflect that with much of Northeast Ohio reaching near 60 degrees.

If you want to get outside and take a break from being inside, you have a small window to enjoy the warm temperatures before rain moves in across the area for most of the evening through Friday.

The best to get outside is between 3 and 4 p.m. Thursday.

The National Weather Service issued a River Flood Warning for the following counties: Holmes County Lorain County Stark County Wayne County


Temperatures really soar for Friday with highs in the 65 to 70 degree range through early afternoon. Expect a line of thunderstorms for the morning hours. Windy and drier through mid-afternoon. A few thundershowers with a cold front for the evening rush hour as temperatures fall quickly back into the 40s by evening. A cold but dry weekend is ahead.
