TOLEDO, Ohio — A dry, quiet, mild February afternoon comes around again Wednesday with highs reaching the mid-40s. This is ahead of a warm, windy and wet Thursday.
Another surge of warmer weather arrives Thursday with highs soaring into the upper 50s to near 60 degrees. However, this warm-up will come with more widespread, soaking rain showers.
Widespread rain is likely Thursday morning. Rainfall totals over a half inch will be possible in many places.
During the day, gusty winds will be a concern with gusts over 50mph possible by late morning and early afternoon. The southwest breeze will help create highs near record levels in the lower 60s. Winds will subside significantly into Thursday evening.
High temperatures fall back into the 40s for Friday.
Cooler air returns for the weekend with more mild weather likely by the middle of next week, with several days reaching into the 40s and 50s.
Who loves the sun?
During the entire month of December, we only saw two fully-sunny days. In January, we only got three sunny days. This last week has brought some much-needed sun!
