CLEVELAND — I'm issuing a FLANNEL SHIRT ALERT for the upcoming weekend as cooler air settles in!

Clouds will float thru the area tonight as a weakening cold front shifts our way. Lows tonight will stay the lower 60s by sunrise.

That weak cold front will slowly shift east through Ohio on Tuesday. Clouds will mix with a little sunshine. I cant rule out an isolated thundershower in a few spots...especially during the afternoon. We will stay warm with highs in the middle and upper 70s.

We briefly dry out Wednesday with highs in the mid-70s before our next storm system moves in Thursday. That will bump our rain chances up heading into the weekend.

Most of this week will be above average. However, cooler temperatures will move back in by the weekend with highs in the 60s Saturday and Sunday. Saturday looks wet with drier weather arriving on Brown's Sunday.


  • Mild tonight
  • Another warm week ahead
  • Isolated showers Tuesday
  • Dry & warm Wednesday
  • Stormy Thursday
  • Lingering rain Friday & Saturday
  • Dry and cooler for Browns Sunday
