flurries or maybe a little light drizzle the rest of the area is dry. but the issue is that we have this big swirling system off to our north and, with that in the vicinity pretty much through saturday, we are going to have to keep on again/off again rain and snow chances in the forecast. no big accumulating snows, but at least a chance of precipitation each day through the weekend. let's start with this afternoon's forecast. 42 at 1:00. it's going to be windy t we are going to keep these clouds the rest of the day. maybe a few peeks of sun, but they will be few and far between. we will hit about 43 at 3:00. drop to 41 by 5:00. and again it will be windy, cold, and you might see some spotty wintry mix pop up. particularly out to the east of cleveland, same areas that are seeing that stuff right now, that chance is also in the forecast through tonight and tonight will be chilly. 39 at 7:00.
and eventually by early tomorrow morning, we will be in the 30s. a, or mid 30s. a little blustery through the night, too. so that might make it feel colder from time to time. that means another chilly morning out at the bus stop and a cloudy morning, too. let's go through your friday forecast. i'm going to use futureview to show you how tomorrow's going to pan out and again, i do think it will be another mostly cloudy day. notice that in the morning we could have a little rain/snow mix out here, lake, geauga, ashtabula counties and that will be the trend through the day where the rest of the area stays dry, just seeing a lot of clouds and gusty winds and then all of our snow and rain mix kind of stays out east here. 1:00 in the afternoon, this is still ongoing. if you commute in these areas east side of cleveland out to arboretum, conneaught, tomorrow's commute may feature a
dipping into friday night, some of it may work its way into cleveland so we will be watching that closely for you. jeff will be here monitoring the situation as will jason nicklaus. 42 for tomorrow with gusty winds through the day. same thing this weekend. cloudy, cold, chance of a wintry mix on saturday mainly east of cleveland. but notice that sunday, there's the difference. i've issued an alert day for sunday, because i think our wintry mix at that last day of the weekend is going to be a guys. if you will be driving around sunday afternoon, maybe you have plans on sunday afternoon or evening, be aware that there will be fairly widespread rain, snow mix moving in later in the day. then we should dry out by monday. >> tia: sounds like winter is showing up to the party. >> samantha: you know today is december 1, the first day of meteorlogical winter, december, january, february, so it's arriving right on time. >> brian: those temperatures
>> samantha: no. not at all. average high is only 44 for today. but you know yesterday, we were in the 60s. so -- might kind of come as a shock to the system. >> tia: christmas lights up? >> samantha: oh, the tree has been up. >> tia: christmas lights up? >> brian: oh, yeah. not like this, though. >> tia: no. a light fight in minnesota. bob zajak used to go big for christmas. you see what i'm talking about. decorating his house with 300,000 lights. ok? but this time, this year, right, his christmas spirit is dim. car stop by his display leaving in disappointment. we found out why he turned out his lights, because of a
