A break from the rain for most of us today with record high temps expected! Today we will see a mix of sun and clouds with more clouds farther NW as rain will mainly be staying to NW Ohio. More sun for Central and farther SE. The record high for today, February 20th, is 68°F, set in 2016 & 1891. We may break that before Noon and keep climbing! Enjoy the warm temps today, but it may feel slightly cooler due to brisk winds out of the southwest at 15-30 mph.
Tonight a cold front to our west will be approaching and rain will be arriving towards daybreak tomorrow. The leading edge could have some lightning and thunder around daybreak and for the morning hours Wednesday. Lingering rain through the early afternoon Wednesday then more rain moving in late. Temps will fall throughout the day Wednesday and as temps fall late we could see some freezing rain and ice Wednesday night into early Thursday, mainly north of I-70. Early precip moves out Thursday and some afternoon sun trying to break out and cooler temps.
More on and off rain returning for Friday, Saturday, and early Sunday. Sunshine returns for Monday. Rain totals by the end of the weekend will generally be 2"-3" so flooding could be a concern heading into the weekend.
