Thunder, rain on tap for overnight


Rain and thunder expected to hit the region tonight will linger through Wednesday afternoon.

Showers will be light and spotty through early evening. After a break, there will be more rain by midnight and a rumble of thunder overnight into Wednesday morning, when the rain will be steady at times and then taper around midday, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Tuesday evening.

The region will remain breezy overnight and all day Wednesday, which will make it feel unpleasant outside, said Simpson. Temps will start in the mid to upper 40s and fall to the lower 40s by midday. Temps will recover to near 50 in the afternoon with a few peeks of sun late.

A chilly start is in store for Thursday with temperatures in the mid-30s, some clouds and a bit of a breeze that should preclude any frost. A weak disturbance will swing through northern Ohio in the afternoon and may supply the northern half of the region with a few passing light showers.

Rain leaves the area Thursday night. Light winds will likely lead to frost to start the day Friday with temperatures again in the mid 30s, said Simpson.

The sun with be back Friday and will recover to the low 60s.

According to Simpson, a system will pass by to the south, but the area will be affected by the northern fringe of that system. Clouds and a few showers are possible. Residents south of the region may see a few showers Saturday afternoon, but any place is fair game for showers on Sunday.

There isn’t a lot of rain in the forecast for the weekend, Simpson said, and the majority of Sunday will be dry. Lows Saturday and Sunday will be in the 40s. Highs will be in the low 60s Saturday into the mid to upper 60s Sunday.
