CLEVELAND — Weather should be quiet the rest of tonight with increasing clouds and chilly temperatures in the 20s and 30s.

There's good news for Sunday. The rain should hold off until after sunset! Skies will be cloudy with temperatures hanging in the 40s for most of the day. But, a warm front will slide north through the area by late afternoon. That should actually bump our evening temperatures up into the 50s late on Sunday. Rain showers are likely Sunday night and Monday morning ahead of a cold front.

That front will arrive around midday Monday. Expect morning highs in the 50s on Monday with rapidly falling afternoon temperatures. The major weather headline for Monday will be the WIND! Expect winds near 30 mph behind the cold front with gusts to 45 mph. A Wind Advisory will likely be needed for parts of Northern Ohio on Monday. We will keep you posted.

Few light snow showers may develop by Monday PM as much colder air pours in. Any accumulation should be minimal.
