Northeast Ohio weather: Cold weather lingering through the work week

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - High pressure is trying to take hold of the area as we speak. A weak disturbance will nose its way in on Wednesday, bringing us snow showers. A cold front will swing through on Thursday, facilitating the development of more snow showers. High pressure will return for the upcoming weekend.

Forecast: Flurries and chilly temps, then dry weather expected

Short Term Forecast:

Good afternoon to you! I hope that you are having a fantastic Tuesday. I also hope that you are finding ways to stay warm. It’s chilly out there, isn’t it?

We’re going to fall back into the 20s overnight. Occasional, light snow showers are on the docket for tonight. Accumulation will be less than one inch.

Feeling More Like January:

A “normal” high for today would be around 42° in the Cleveland area. Unfortunately, we won’t see 42° any time soon.

Tomorrow’s high: 34° Thursday’s high: 37° Friday’s high: 29°

With colder air streaming in, snow chances will be in the forecast through Thursday.

For Wednesday, expect scattered, occasional, light snow showers. Accumulation will be less than one inch.

More widespread snow will move through on Thursday afternoon/early evening, as our next cold front swings through. This is when we may see some higher totals, on the order of 1” – 4” of new snowfall, mainly from Cleveland east into the Snow Belt.

In the wake of this system’s snow (we call it “synoptic snow”), expect some light lake effect snow showers to fall overnight Thursday into Friday. Favored areas for lake effect snow will be in the Primary Snow Belt.

Any lingering snow showers should come to an end by Friday afternoon.

Hello, Sunshine!

How cloudy was November? It was ridiculous, wasn’t it? Day #1, Day #3, and Day #4 of December haven’t been so great either.

But finally, FINALLY, we have sunshine to talk about. Saturday and Sunday are looking partly to mostly sunny and dry.

Despite the sun, things will remain chilly.

Saturday’s high: 30° Sunday’s high: 34°
