CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - After a very cloudy start to the day, skies are slowly clearing.

Expect plentiful sunshine by late-afternoon.

Temperatures will be just a tiny bit above normal this afternoon.

The 19 First Alert Weather Team is forecasting highs well into the 30s to around 40 degrees.

The next few days will feature a nice warming trend.

Temperatures will climb into the low 40s on Tuesday.

By Wednesday, highs will be in the upper 40s to around 50 degrees.

The weather will be fairly quiet through mid-week, other than a few passing late-day rain showers on Wednesday.

Our next storm system will arrive on Thursday, bringing us widespread rain.

This is the same system that’s impacting the West Coast right now.

As temperatures get colder on Thursday night, rain will mix with, and then change over to, snow.

Snow will continue into Friday, impacting local travel and accumulating on the ground.

It’s much too early to discuss potential snowfall totals for our area, but at this time, residents should plan for some travel headaches on Friday and at least a few inches of snowfall on the ground by Friday night.
