FORECAST | A cold front will bring rain and thunder this evening

Clouds continue to thicken up across Ohio ahead of a cold front that will bring rain and storms this evening near and after sunset. Leftover showers stay for Sunday.

CLEVELAND — Our stretch of warm weather is coming to a close as a cold front sweeps across Northeast Ohio. No more 70s/80s for a while, but 50s/60s instead (which is much more typical for mid-April). The front will also bring rain and storms.

TONIGHT'S FORECAST

- Expect a wave of rain and storms mainly after 6 PM with a peak window from 8-11 PM

- Temperatures will drop into the 50s late tonight

STORM ZONES

We're on the edge of the storm threat this evening. A band of rain with embedded thunderstorms will lift northeastward across Ohio, eventually heading towards Lake Erie. They are expected to weaken over time, but they will most likely still have pockets of lightning and gusty winds.

SUNDAY AND NEXT WEEK

A large pocket of cool air will continue to creep south over the Great Lakes, helping us to return to more seasonal temperatures. On Sunday we may stick with on-and-off showers as the back end of this system slowly exits Ohio. After a stray shower on Monday, we should trend mainly cool and dry next week with variable clouds.

THE FORECAST:

TONIGHT: Rain and thunder possible until 1 AM, then light showers. Mid 50s.

SUNDAY: Off-and-on showers. Low 60s.

MONDAY: Becoming partly cloudy and warm. Upper 50s.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Mid 50s.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Mid 50s.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy skies. Upper 50s.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy. Near 60.
