and even this evening. we should still have breezy winds. temperatures right now in the upper 30s and low 40s within the 275 loop. 44 and 45 degrees for a couple of spots. so a pretty mild start right now. everyone with clear skies. satellite and radar, not a cloud to be found for the ohio river valley, extending out toward the midwest. and a good portion of the great lakes quiet this morning. there is a cold front that's dragging out of the northern plains that will quickly rush our way and arrive later tonight. it will gather clouds and strong winds. not expecting precipitation. as the front gets closer for us, encounters more moisture. south winds will pick up. southwest winds today will be strong. gusts above 40 miles an hour. when you get that high, you could cause damage for the area. a limited concern in the afternoon. mainly our northern counties as that front gets closer tonight. it will drag in clouds, maybe some showers with it. a band of showers expected. around mid nide tonight, should not drop off a lot of rain. then the clouds start to clear
out as soon as tomorrow morning. high pressure behind this front will drop temperatures tomorrow. highs are expected monday in the mid 50s. so it's not a big drop back. i still think we're above average for monday. we with should bring back sunshine. the winds should be weaker and we'll have temperatures still remaining in the 50s tomorrow. here's our wind forecast today. between 15 and 20 miles an hour sustained winds, picking up by midday. staying there, if not getting stronger through the afternoon. the highest wind potential will be the northern tier of counties. sustained winds at 20 miles an hour at times. gusts even higher. until the front comes through later tonight, the winds will stay strong. gusts 40 miles an hour a potential. in the northern counties, 30 to 35 miles an hour. northern tier beginning at 11:00 a.m. lasting through 7:00 this evening. then beyond that, for our late evening, the winds start to settle down a little bit. the front comes through around midnight.
that will bring our chance for clouds and a band of showers with it. we've been talking maybe a tenth of an inch of shower activity. most of us at least sprinkles, if not light showers as this front rolls through. this computer model kind of dwindle ing that moisture a little bit. we'll see the band come through for everyone during the night and move out by monday morning. 65 today. warm but windy. later tonight, rain showers arrive. a few extra morning clouds. more afternoon sunshine for monday. tuesday, another band of rain, this time we could be talking widespread, heavy rain at times, evening thunderstorms mixed in. the severe potential is very limited, forecasting for tuesday. i don't think it's too much of a problem. chilly air behind it. with moisture overriding the cool air thursday, we could be talking snow showers back. beyond that, temperatures climb, but below average into next weekend. jonathan. jonathan: thank you, jennifer. plenty of college basketball action to go around saturday.
