CLEVELAND — Skies will remain cloudy overnight with temperatures hovering in the upper 30s and lower 40s. I cant rule out a couple of isolated areas of drizzle or sprinkles.

The warming trend rolls into Friday with upper 40s by the afternoon. Skies will be mostly cloudy through the daylight hours.

But the temperatures keep on rising Friday night into the early hours of New Year's Day. Temperatures around midnight will climb to near 50 degrees with widely scattered rain showers to welcome 2022.

Plan on a soggy Saturday as temps start the gradual drop back to more seasonable numbers. We're in the 40s by the afternoon with 30s by nightfall.

It will be cold enough for scattered snow showers on Sunday. Plan on minor accumulations and a few slick spots on the streets to wrap up the weekend. Winds Sunday will gust to near 30 mph. Stay warm!
