CLEVELAND (WJW) – A soaker moving in! Steady to heavy rain moving through this afternoon into the evening.

The rain will mix briefly with snow during the late evening and overnight. Even a few snow flurries may develop overnight into early Saturday morning but it won’t amount to much.

A FLOOD WATCH is in effect for some and will last into the late hours of Friday night.

Winds will become quite gusty, so a WIND ADVISORY is in effect for some until 9 a.m. Saturday morning.

The widespread heavy rain is expected from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. this will cause some minor flooding and ponding on the roads

Wind increase out of east late afternoon sustained at 15-25 MPH. Winds will be gusty through the day with average wind gusts between 35-45 MPH.

Temps in the low to mid 40s in the afternoon could spike to 50 briefly in the evening.

There’s chance of a wintry mix as it exits, otherwise a few light snow showers and flurries around early Saturday. Little to no accumulation expected. No significant snow for us. The bullseye is from Chicago to Detroit.

Long range outlook is showing below normal temperatures/higher chances of snow in mid March across a large portion of the Ohio Valley. This was first indicated on Scott’s long range outlook on February 23rd!
