CLEVELAND — Our first wave of rain has arrived for the week. Scattered rain showers will continue overnight with low temperatures in the middle and upper 30s. Rainfall totals are expected to reach between 1/4 and 1/2 inch by sunrise.

A few showers are possible for the morning commute on Tuesday. But most of the rain will have already moved east of the area. Skies will be cloudy all day. High temperatures should be able to reach into the lower 50s by midday. A cold front will move thru during the afternoon. Shower chances will stay limited even as the cold front moves by.

Enjoy it because temps STRUGGLE Wednesday and likely hold near 40 all day. We're back in the 50s on Thursday but that comes with more rain.

That's the second wave. It'll bring more widespread, heavier rain to Ohio with a much steeper temp drop on the backside. We may even see some a few scattered snow showers Friday into early Saturday.

What To Expect:

  • Rain overnight
  • Lows in the 30s
  • Isolated showers Tuesday
  • Heavier rain Thursday
  • Snow possible Friday
