Next chance for rain comes Wednesday with highs in the mid 50s. Partly cloudy skies and some rain showers. While some of the parameters are impressive, I don't think this will be a significant severe weather event. Highs ranging from the upper 70 to lower 80s. It will be breezy with winds around 18 to 21 miles per hour.

It's officially spring, but it will still feel a bit like winter as temperatures hover around freezing this weekend in Northeast Ohio.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Breezy and warm.

The first low is an upper low and they occasionally baffle models. A few showers and storms are possible, especially across our northwestern counties.

Saturday and Sunday are sunny again, but chilly with highs in the 30s on Saturday to the lower 40s on Sunday. No severe weather is expected, but we could see some heavy downpours with 1-3 inches possible.

Overnight tonight, rain and storms continue early, before transitioning into a rain/snow mix towards the north.

The heaviest rain over the next two days will be from Texas into MS and Alabama where locally more than 4 inches of rain is possible.

MONDAY: 30% chance of rain.

Temperatures will get back into the 60s for the new workweek.

TUESDAY: 30% chance of rain.
