A mix of sun and clouds with a warm breeze gusting to 25MPH at times.

There’s a chance to get near record warmth again… A lot of cities in jeopardy, I think we’ll tie a few for sure!

Big temperature swings are VERY common in northern Ohio, Scott did some checking. After looking at the temperature every day since the 1950s, he found it was most common in March and April.

Rain on the way tomorrow. Friday’s rain will be mainly across western Ohio. Coverage increases Friday late afternoon and evening with widespread steady rain Friday night/predawn Saturday.
