CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - All Severe Thunderstorm Warnings have been CANCELLED, as of 4:58 PM.

Forecast: Lake effect snow and freezing temps expected

Here is a cool time lapse video of the storms as they rolled through Strongsville, from Cleveland 19 News Meteorologist Kelly Dobeck.

Short Term Forecast:

Good evening! After a very active day weather-wise, we are still tracking rain moving through. Rumbles of thunder and small hail are possible.

The storms will move out by 8:00 PM or so.

Following an unseasonably warm day, temperatures will crash overnight, falling into the 20s by early tomorrow morning.

Snow Returns To NE Ohio:

Lake effect snow showers and squalls will develop by 11:00 PM or so tonight. These will continue, especially in the Snow Belt, through Wednesday night.

We are anticipating 2″ - 6″ in Geauga County and in-land Ashtabula County. Isolated higher totals are possible, especially around Geauga County.

Along the lakeshore from Ashtabula west to Bay Village, we are forecasting 1″ - 3″. The immediate lakeshore will see less, due to high winds.

You can also expect 1″ - 3″ around Summit County, northern Stark County, and southern Portage County.

As you travel farther west and south, expect 1″ or less.

Disclaimer: Portions of Ashland and Richland counties could see up to 3″, should we get a good lake effect connection off of Lake Michigan.

Some lake effect bands may linger through Thursday morning in the Primary Snow Belt.

Turning Cold:

I hope that you enjoyed today’s warm weather! Things are turning cold again.

Thursday’s high: 28°

Friday’s high: 30°

Saturday’s high: 33°

Sunday’s high: 36°

Weekend Outlook:

We have one little window of opportunity for snow this weekend, and that will be on Saturday. A system will be passing by to our south.

Right now it looks like most of the snow will stay to our south, but some light snow showers will fall in northeast Ohio during the day. Those of you who live south of Akron will see the highest snowfall totals.

Stay tuned for forecast snowfall totals, as we get closer to the weekend.
