CLEVELAND — The start of Memorial Day weekend is starting off wet and chilly. But good news: conditions improve closer to Memorial Day.
Plan on a few rain showers Saturday along with temps in the 50s. The winds won't start backing off until later in the afternoon.
Clean up continues following dangerous and historic lakeshore flooding in Ottawa, Sandusky, and Erie counties, including the islands.
Winds will still be gusty Saturday, but not as intense as Friday. Expect gusts of 25-35 mph. Winds will continue to diminish Sunday.
There will be additional scattered showers Saturday. These will be light and hit or miss. There is a better chance to see rain in our eastern communities.
Clouds will be eroding to the northwest, so parts of the area could see the sun Saturday! It will remain chilly all day. Highs will be in the 50s for most. This is 15-20 degrees below typical high temperatures during the end of May.
Conditions will continue to improve throughout the weekend. It will be much brighter and warmer by Memorial Day!
Sunday looks much better. Still cool, but dry with temperatures in the 60s back Sunday before we hit the 70s again on Monday.
Monday should be the nicest day of the Memorial Day Weekend. Expect partly cloudy skies with highs in the lower and middle 70s.
It's a rough start to the holiday weekend but the second half looks great.
