CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A cold front swept through Northeast Ohio allowing for clouds to move in overnight.
Temperatures today are starting around 40 degrees and will slowly drop through the day.
This afternoon, expect most places to be in the middle 30s with mostly cloudy skies. We could see a little bit of drizzle/freezing drizzle primarily along the lakeshore of the snowbelt to start the day, otherwise we’ll be dry and just colder.
The big changes begin Monday.
The first system will move in from the plains over the lake late Monday, similar to what we saw on NYE, only not as intense.
Expect winds to gust up to 40 MPH with more steady rain moving in late day Monday.
Temperatures will warm through the day to near 50 degrees by the evening hours.
About a half inch of rain expected with this system.
A few showers will linger through the night into early Tuesday. After that, a cold front will quickly move through, bringing winter back to northeast Ohio.
Temperatures will start in the 40s and drop through the day, with snow possible mainly in the primary and secondary snowbelt overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. Lingering flakes will be possible through the day Wednesday, with high temperatures right around freezing. We’re not looking at crazy high snow totals, but since we haven’t seen much snow so far this season, it will be a bigger deal for some. We can’t rule out a few of those pesky snow bands developing continuously in the snowbelt Wednesday. We’ll see lingering lake snow into early Thursday morning.
A colder pattern looks to set up after that, with high temperatures through the rest of the week staying in the middle 30s. We could see a few more snowflakes heading into next weekend.
