Strong winds and thunderstorms in the forecast

Strong winds and thunderstorms in the forecast.

CLEVELAND (WJW) – We will slowly clear some overnight to allow areas of fog to form in our southern communities. Because the cloud cover acts as an insulator, temperatures will not be too cold. Low in the mid-40s.

More sun than cloud cover is expected on Wednesday with highs in the slightly cooler 60 degrees, with the front settled south of the area and the flow of the lake.

We are tracking a robust system that is expected to develop in the Plains States. As it gets closer, the clouds and winds pick up on Thursday. It will be quite windy, but it will also help raise our temperatures close to 70 again! Isolated showers and thunderstorms are likely after sunset Thursday night.

The weekend will show much cooler temperatures and the possibility of some snow/mixing/rain. Highs hovering around 40 with nightly lows below freezing. Stay tuned – there could be snow accumulation in our snowbelt communities through Tuesday of next week!

Here’s a look at our specific details of the diminishing daylight during the winter solstice. There is good news on the chart with the time of sunrise and sunset at the end of January.
