Northeast Ohio weather: A few snowflakes are possible overnight

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - High pressure will build into the Ohio Valley by tomorrow morning and will move off the Mid-Atlantic coast by Friday morning. Another cold front will move southeast across our area Friday night. High pressure will move in behind the cold front (by Sunday).

Short Term Forecast:

Good evening! It was a windy day around here. Winds will stay up through the night. They’ll be sustained from the northwest at 10 – 20 mph. The farther south you go from Lake Erie, the less windy it will be.

Forecast: Cold and overcast weather ahead

We’re going to be battling some drier air tonight, so I am not overly optimistic about additional rain chances. I wouldn’t rule out a few sprinkles or light showers through early tomorrow morning, but we are not forecasting widespread rain. A few snowflakes may mix in early tomorrow morning. We are not forecasting any accumulation with this.

Disclaimer: As I mentioned above, we are really going up against some dry air tonight. This will cut down on our precipitation chances. Most of us won’t see any snow, but I don’t want you to be caught off guard by the few flakes that we may see.

Otherwise, it’s just cold and windy and it will be all night. Temperatures will fall into the mid 30s by early tomorrow morning. Lakeshore locations may be just a touch warmer. Freeze Warnings and Watches are in place for many locations south of the lakeshore.

You can check to see if your location is included in the freeze alerts by heading to our free Cleveland 19 First Alert weather app.

Nice Ending To The Work Week:

With high pressure moving back in tomorrow, the end of the work week still looks fabulous. We’ll have a lot of sunshine around Thursday and Friday. It will feel very much like Fall.

Thursday’s high: 49° Friday’s high: 58°

I am concerned that we could see a few rain showers on Friday evening after 9:00. This would impact our local high school football games, if it were to come to fruition. We’ll keep you updated.

Weekend Outlook:

Unfortunately, the beautiful weather we’ll have around here on Thursday and Friday will not stick around for the weekend.

Saturday: Cloudy and windy with rain showers. Highs in the low 50s. Saturday night: Mostly cloudy and windy with rain showers. Snow may mix in. Overnight lows in the mid 30s. Sunday: Mostly cloudy and windy with a rain morning showers, primarily in the Snow Belt. Highs in the mid 40s.
