CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A weak, moisture-starved cold front will pass through northern Ohio this evening, ushering in a much colder air mass for the middle of the week.

Temperatures will only climb into the low 60s on Wednesday afternoon.

Lakeshore communities will get stuck in the upper 50s.

The 19 First Alert Weather Team is forecasting a high temperature of 59 degrees in Cleveland on Wednesday afternoon.

That’s 12 degrees below normal for this time of the year.

Cold air will hang around through Wednesday night, and temperatures will fall into the upper 30s and lower 40s by Thursday morning.

Patchy frost may occur inland.

We should thaw out relatively quickly Thursday afternoon.

Expect highs in the upper 60s.

Friday will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the upper 70s.

Our next cold front will arrive Friday night, bringing us widespread showers during the second half of the day.

Showers will linger into Saturday morning. (What is it lately with rain Friday evening into Saturday?!)

On that note, there’s truly nothing historic or scientific about this early-in-the-weekend rainfall trend.

It’s just been a reoccurring pattern recently.

The second half of the weekend will be dry.
