CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - We began the work week with a Winter storm, and we’re finishing it with bitterly cold weather.

Temperatures will plummet into the lower single digits tonight, and many locations may even drop below zero degrees.

The last time the air temperature was below zero degrees in Cleveland was January 31st, 2019.

We won’t warm up much at all tomorrow.

Temperatures will creep into the low 20s, and with the breeze factored in, it will feel as if it’s in the single digits for most of the afternoon.

Sunday will also be quite chilly.

Some light lake effect snow will develop by Sunday morning, mainly impacting the Primary Snow Belt and the lakeshore.

Meanwhile, an Alberta clipper system will be moving into the area.

This will bring widespread light snow to northeast Ohio.

In the Primary Snow Belt, we’re forecasting two to four inches of new snowfall on Sunday.

Outside of the Snow Belt, expect a general trace to two inches of new snowfall.

Temperatures will stay very chilly through next week.
