LAKE EFFECT SNOW WARNING FOR ASHTABULA COUNTY STARTING AT 4 PM  UNTIL  7 AM SATURDAY.

WIND CHILL ADVISORY FOR ALL OF NE OHIO STARTING AT 10 PM TONIGHT UNTIL 10 AM SUNDAY

FRIDAY FORECAST UPDATED:

The coldest temperatures of the season are moving in as the weekend nears!

Temperatures take center stage today thru Sunday as highs today won't break 20's and barely single digitinto the weekend .  A strong cold front will move in late tonight and it will bring the bitter chill back to NE Ohio.  Winds will also turn gusty as temperatures begin to fall.

Along with the cold air lake effect snow will start to develop just in time for your evening commute.  The snow will continue through Saturday as frigid air moves over a warm Lake Erie.  Lake Huron may also increase snow showers into the evening.

Wind chill of possibly -15° will make for a cold Saturday. These are dangerous wind chills we are talking about! Having any exposed skin out for a prolonged amount of time could cause frostbite.  Layers are a must!

Sunday morning low temperatures will fall to between 0 and -5 degrees with wind chills to -15. Sunday should stay dry with a high near 18 degrees.

PREVIOUS DISCUSSION: Saturday's high temperatures will only climb up to between 7 & 10 degrees. A few lake effect snow showers are possible in the snow belt. A heavier snow squall is likely across portions of Ashtabula County Friday night into Saturday with accumulations between 5 & 10 inches, where the squall persists.
