CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - After a fairly pleasant (for January, anyway) start to the week, the weather will be turning much more active by Thursday.

Widespread rain will move into the area over the course of the day.

There will be enough instability present for a few rumbles of thunder during the afternoon.

As temperatures fall in the evening, rain will mix with snow, eventually changing to all snow by Friday morning.

Friday will be all-January with widespread snow, especially in the Primary and Secondary Snow Belts, cold temperatures, and gusty winds.

The system will depart by the weekend.

It’s a little too early to give specific snowfall totals for exact locations, but for now, plan for the potential for a widespread one to three inches of snowfall, if not more.

There will be travel headaches and delays on Friday.

In the short term, a little disturbance is moving through our region today.

This feature will bring some patchy drizzle and flurries to northern Ohio before sunset.
