Northeast Ohio Weather: Quiet start to the work week

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Through this afternoon and tonight, a quick shot of energy will push south of the area. This could bring a little moisture to the Cleveland area, but for the most part it will just increase cloud cover and allow for winds to pick up a bit. There’s a better shot at some light snow to our west and south, from Mansfield south to Holmes and Tuscarawas Co. Light accumulation expected in those areas through late today.

Keep the chance for a few flakes to fly, mainly in the snowbelt, with clouds early Monday, but expect most of the day to be dry with clearing clouds as high pressure builds in. Tuesday will be dry with highs in the low 40s.

A warm front will lift through late Tuesday into Wednesday, but we should start off the day mostly dry/with just light rain around. We'll have to watch for Wednesday for the timing of this system. Right now it looks to be Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday, with temperatures near 50° during the day and dropping to near freezing overnight. This could allow for a few snowflakes to mix in overnight. Scattered showers and temperatures near 50° sounds about right for the official first day of Spring on Wednesday.

We’ll be drying out by the afternoon Thursday and staying dry into next weekend with seasonable highs near 50°. Ahead of another system that looks to move in by the end of next weekend, early next week, we could see temperatures warm late next Sunday to near 60°. Stay tuned!
