Northeast Ohio Weather: A few snowflakes on Christmas

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - We had some lake effect light snow this morning, but mainly are friends in PA got the most of it as a clipper system moved over the lakes. Overnight we'll hold on to a few lake effect flurries with temperatures dropping into the low 20s.

Christmas Day, we'll hold onto a few afternoon flurry chances, but other than that, expect a mainly dry day with high temperatures in the upper 30s.

Things start to get a little crazy as we head into the end of this week. An area of low pressure pushing up from the south will bring a huge swath of moisture to the area late Thursday night into Friday. Each model run over the past couple of days has slowed down this system, so expect the bulk of the heavy rainfall after you head to bed Thursday and through the day Friday. Along with this system, warmer air will be moving in, allowing temperatures to warm into the upper 40s Thursday, and middle and upper 50s on Friday!

Thursday will be mainly dry through the day, so you should be actually able to enjoy the above average temperatures. On Friday, not so much. Rain will be with us through most of morning clearing out by late day.

Colder air filters back in behind that system Saturday, where temperatures will drop back into the 30s. Looks like we could get a lake effect system moving in over the weekend bringing some snow to mainly the snow belt. Stay tuned!
