CLEVELAND — We've only hit 70 degrees or warmer on 5 previous St. Patrick's Days. We'll make that 6 today! Look for highs near 70 degrees with lots of sunshine all day long. Temperatures will be cooler along Lake Erie.

Rain chances return for everyone by Friday afternoon/evening. Temperatures will climb back into the 60s. However, a lake breeze will once again keep our lake shore counties cooler during the afternoon.

Scattered showers continue on and off Saturday accompanied by cooler temperatures in the 50s.

We welcome the start of the spring season this Sunday at 11:33 am with cooler (although seasonable) temperatures.
