FRIDAY MORNING UPDATE: The winter weather advisory has expired as snow showers and freezing drizzle diminish across northeast Ohio. A few light to moderate snow showers remain over the Cuyahoga/Medina county border, along with isolated snow showers in Wayne, Lorain, Stark and eastern Cuyahoga County. These will likely disappear before the noon hour. This afternoon we'll see mostly cloudy conditions with a high in the low 30s. Tonight we'll stay dry with a low of 23. This weekend will be cold and dry with highs in the mid 30s.  

FRIDAY FORECAST: Freezing drizzle and snow is falling from an upper level disturbance. This line of frozen precipitation is moving southeastward and breaking apart. By 9 AM, the majority of precipitation will be gone. We'll see a high of 32 with mostly cloudy skies for the afternoon. Overnight will be cold and dry with a low of 23. Winds from the NW at 10 mph.

THURSDAY NIGHT UPDATE: A weak trough over Lake Erie will slide southeast tonight. It will stir up some light snow and freezing drizzle. Icy spots can be expected on untreated surfaces thru tonight and the Friday morning commute! Bridges and overpasses will be especially slippery. Drive with care! Low temperatures under a cloudy sky will fall back to near 27 degrees.

Any light snow or freezing drizzle should abate by late morning or early afternoon Friday. Skies will remain mostly cloudy through the afternoon. Highs Friday will only creep back into the lower 30s.

Saturday and Sunday look dry with highs both days in the 30s.

THURSDAY MIDDAY UPDATE: Continued cloudy skies with sporadic light snowfall. Temperatures hovering in the low 30s with westerly winds from 10 to 15 mph. This is putting our wind chills in the teens and low 20s.  Bundle up!

THURSDAY FORECAST: A low east of us has just enough influence to bring in a few flurries today.  We'll see cloudy skies with a high in the low 30s. Winds will come from the west at 10 mph, just enough to give us wind chills in the 20s. Tonight a few more snow showers, but still minimal, and unlikely to get in your way. The low tonight: 28.

WEDNESDAY MIDDAY UPDATE: The front and low pressure system has moved east of us, but the wrap around the low will provide the opportunity for lake-enhanced snow showers, particularly across our eastern sections. The most likely time for snow showers will be around 7pm. We'll see brisk winds from the west today and tonight with temperatures hovering in the mid 30s, and a low tonight in the upper 20s.

WEDNESDAY FORECAST: A cold front arrives Tuesday night, bringing with it a return to more December-like temperatures. Scattered rain tonight will mix with and change over to a little light snow across Northern Ohio by sunrise. Low temperatures will fall back into the lower and middle 30s tonight. Winds will increase out of the west after midnight, gusting above 20 miles per hour at times.

A few steadier snow showers could persist in the Eastern Suburbs of Cleveland east in Lake, Geauga, & Ashtabula Counties on Wednesday. There an inch or two of snow could accumulate. Elsewhere, I expect just a few flurries during the day under mainly cloudy skies. Temperatures will hover in the middle 30s thru lunchtime and then fall back a few degrees toward 30 by late afternoon. Winds will be gusty again thru mid-afternoon between 20 & 30 mph at times.

Isolated snow flurries are possible again on Thursday with a high near 33 degrees. Grab those winter coats again!

TUESDAY MIDDAY UPDATE:  A low over Michigan is tracking east bringing a cold front with it. The low will continue to track moisture into northeast Ohio resulting in rain for the afternoon and evening. Once the front passes, look for rain to turn to snow, likely around 3AM. Highs today around 52 with lows tonight in the low to mid 30s. 


Grab the umbrellas. We'll see scattered rain showers through the day Tuesday with morning temps in the 40s and highs topping out near 50. Cooler air will spill in Tuesday night as temps will drop into the 30s. Light rain will change over to a few snow showers overnight and into early Wednesday.

Rain showers arrive after midnight tonight ahead of a surface low pressure and cold front that will move through late on Tuesday. Skies will be cloudy tonight with low temperatures dropping down to near 40 degrees.

Temperatures stay mild ahead of the cold front on Tuesday. Skies will be cloudy. Rain showers will be scattered around the area through mid afternoon or so. High temperatures reach up to near 50 degrees one more time.

Colder air arrives on Wednesday behind the cold front. Highs will only creep into the middle 30s. A few snow showers are possible off of Laker Erie during the day.

MONDAY FORECAST: We're starting the day with temperatures well above our normal high of 38. We should reach 50 before the day is over. Fog for the morning hours will give way to mostly to partly cloudy by the afternoon. Tonight, rain moves in ahead of a front, the low will be in the low 40s. It'll be a showery Tuesday with snow by Wednesday morning.


We'll see mainly cloudy skies Sunday with highs in the low to mid 40s... seasonably cool for this time of the year. We should stay dry with a few spots of morning fog.

During the afternoon, we stay dry with brisk winds out of the west as temps fall into the 30s. Warmer air is in store for Monday with highs running into the upper 40s.

Saturday stays dry. Skies once again will be mostly cloudy. High temperatures will climb up to near 40.

Browns Sunday will be mostly cloudy again. But, with a southwesterly wind flow, temperatures should warm up into the lower and middle 40s during the afternoon.

Snow from the East Coast continues to wind down and exit away from home. With the exception of a flurry in Ashtabula County, everyone will stay dry today.
