Rain will move in overnight as temepratures warm into the upper 50s and lower 60s by sunrise. Winds will gusts above 30 mph at times too.

Our high wind threat comes in two waves Saturday. Strong storms Saturday morning will have heavy rain, occasional lightning and an even higher threat for wind damage. Winds gusting to 50mph while the storms are rolling through.

Once the cold front moves by around midday, and the storms fade out, the second wave of strong winds will arrive behind the front. Strong winds will continue through Saturday evening with wind gusts above 50 miles per hour, especially near the lake shore. Non-thunderstorm wind damage and power outages will be a concern. Temperatures will tumble during the afternoon, out of the 60s and into the 30s by sunset!

That cold air blowing over Lake Erie could give us a few snow showers late Saturday. Thankfully the winds relax heading into Sunday with some sun in the forecast for the Browns game.
