    Despite the rain, temperatures Friday will be on the mild side with highs in the middle 60s. This will likely be the warmest day until next week as a cold front swings through, ushering in colder air for the weekend.


    On Friday afternoon, strong thunderstorms will move into the area. The storms may become severe, threatening travel delays.

    Those headed to the ballpark on Friday for the Cleveland Indian's home opener should dress appropriately with a steady rain in the forecast. A severe thunderstorm could delay parts of the game.

    Overnight temperatures through the weekend will remain near the freezing mark.

    By the end of the weekend, skies will clear on Sunday, and the sunshine will return for just the day.

    Looking ahead to next week, rain will return to the city on Monday.
