FORECAST: Arctic blast of cold air settling in

Posted at 6:09 AM, Jan 21, 2022

CLEVELAND — Cold, Arctic Air is here and will linger through the weekend.

Skies will clear out overnight. Winds will calm way down. That will allow our overnight low temperatures to plummet...single digits near Lake Erie. Closer to zero degrees inland with a few spots dropping below zero! Layers are key!

Clouds will increase during the day on Saturday. After a very cold start, we will warm our temperatures up into the middle and upper 20s by late afternoon.

Plan on another clipper Saturday night and Sunday morning with a few light snow showers expected. Another fast moving Clipper storm arrives Monday night into Tuesday with 1-3" of snow possible area-wide.

Monday will be the warmest day with highs in the 30s. But by Wednesday, more pure arctic air keeps those temps stuck in the middle teens! Welcome to the heart of Winter!
