FirstEnergy reports thousands are without power, with the bulk of the outages in Cuyahoga and Ashtabula counties.

The Wind Advisory that we had in place earlier today has now expired. We will continue to see a few gusts 30-40 mph before calmer conditions move in tonight. Turning chilly this evening as temperatures fall into the 40s and 30s.

Rain develops Thursday morning/noon with afternoon breaks. High temps in the mid 50s… cooler along the lake. As the cold front approaches later in the day another line of showers/storms between 6-9pm then the temps drop into the 20s overnight and into Friday.

Here’s a historical breakdown of February 60s and 70s:

Thursday a Slight Risk is in place for parts of our area for the chance for an isolated strong to severe storm. Damaging, gusty winds will be the main threat with an isolated tornado risk.

Colder Friday with several streaks of scattered lake effect snow Friday/Friday night as temperatures. Some small accumulations.

It’s going to feel COLDER too! Wind chills in the teens all day long on Friday. A 24-36-Hour window of cold before another round of above average temps on the way next week.
