Clouds thickened in a mild, moist southerly flow that will bring a few showers from time to time, capped off by patchy dense fog overnight. Temperatures will average well above normal, holding steady in the mid- t0 upper 40s overnight.

Rain will become more widespread late tonight. Low pressure forming in the southern Plains will track to the upper Ohio Valley Thursday, bringing rain, heavy at times, and a few embedded thunderstorms, tapering to showers later in the day.

A trailing cold front will move through the state Thursday night, ushering in much colder air, causing showers to change to snow after midnight.

A light snow accumulation is possible north and west of the I-71 corridor early Friday, with flurries and gusty northwesterly winds, as temperatures fall to the low to mid-30s. Strong low pressure will lift northeast past the Great Lakes Friday night, resulting in decreasing clouds and wind.

The weekend will start off bright and seasonably cold, as high pressure builds over the eastern portion of the country. Some cloudiness will develop Sunday ahead of the next weather system that will bring showers later on Monday and continuing Tuesday, accompanied by milder weather.
