CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - If the month of April were to end right now, this would be the eighth snowiest April on record in Cleveland, with 8.2 inches of snow on the books at Cleveland Hopkins Airport.

Four of those inches fell today.

We aren’t completely done with snow just yet.

A few hit or miss lake effect snow showers will meander across the area overnight.

Accumulation and impact won’t be as extreme as what we endured Tuesday evening into this morning, but there will be some loss of visibility for travelers.

It will also be quite cold tonight, too, even for this time of the year.

Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s by Thursday morning.

We’ll begin the day Thursday with a few lake effect clouds around, but skies will gradually clear.

Clouds will return during the afternoon, as a weak disturbance moves through.

This disturbance may facilitate the development of a few rain showers during the second half of the day.

Thursday will also be very chilly for mid-to-late April.

Temperatures will only climb into the upper 40s.

With the breeze factored in, it will feel as if it’s in the 30s all day.

High temperatures will return to near 60 degrees by Friday.

Widespread rain will return to the area on Saturday, mainly after 2:00 PM.

If this dreary, cooler pattern is bringing you down, don’t fret!

Temperatures will rebound into the 70s by next Tuesday.
