Posted at 6:24 AM, Dec 15, 2021

CLEVELAND — A WIND ADVISORY is in effect until 6pm Thursday for Cuyahoga, Medina, Lorain, Erie, Huron, Richland, Ashland, Ottawa, Sandusky, & Seneca Counties. Winds could gust between 40 & 50 mph are through Thursday afternoon.

Wednesday night stays mild with temperatures hovering in the 50s. We should be able to bump up the temperatures a bit for Thursday morning into the lower 60s. High temperature records this week are in the middle/upper 60s, we'll get close but shouldn't break any. Too much rain and clouds in the forecast Thursday to get warm enough. Especially the farther south you are. Plan on more rain for Akron and south.
