there is another one coming right after on saturday night, and that's the one that's going to really make a big difference. very cold air behind this secondary front and it will be pretty chilly on sunday and windy, too. but for right now we are dry, you can see how far away the rain; on the great lakes right now, lake erie and ohio hasn't even reached pit burying yet. a while before it makes its way here. how long? let's look at the future cast and see. by 7:00 p.m. this evening it does look like the rain is in the central part of the state. but it still hasn't arrived here, by 4:00 a.m., it will be here, and it should rain and make for messy friday morning rush hour, just prepare yourself now, by 10:00 we could even see some thunderstorms rolling through. we take a little bit of break every now and again, but the rain still with us through the afternoon, and the early part of the evening, and by seven, 8:00 starting to see the beginning of the ends of the cold front, so that will make things cooler saturday. we will see mix every sunday and clouds saturday night.
