CLEVELAND — WIND ADVISORY is in effect Wednesday from 7AM-10PM for Erie, Huron, Lorain, Medina, Richland & Ashland counties and from Noon to Midnight for Cuyahoga, Lake & N. Ashtabula counties. Be careful driving and secure loose lightweight objects with 40-50 mph gusts possible.

I hope you enjoyed today's sunshine... it doesn't last. The seasonable temps don't last either. Winds picking up overnight and gusting to 30mph should keep us in the 30s for early Wednesday. Northwest winds take over by midday with temperatures taking a dive. Gusts over 40mph with temps dropping into the 20s for WED PM. We will likely dip into the teens by early Thursday.

Thankfully we're mainly dry for that drop. I can't rule out a quick burst of a mix or a few light snow showers Wednesday PM. But most are dry until late Thursday into Friday. Best shot for snow then will be our southern counties and up around the snow belt. Temps are holding in the 20s Friday with spotty snow showers. Accumulation appears to be fairly minor.

We are drier for Saturday but Sunday looks wet with rain and a few snowflakes possible.

Stick with the Power of 5 Weather Team and stay up to date with the latest weather.
