CLEVELAND — An arctic cold front is sliding southeast thru Northern Ohio tonight dragging in much colder air a nd a few snow showers behind it for the overnight hours. By sunrise, lows temperatures will be in the lower and middle teens with wind chill readings near zero or slightly below zero! Grab your warmest coat.

Friday's high temperatures will hang in the teens with wind chills again below zero at times during the day. We will see a few peeks of sun. A few lake effect bands of very fine sugary snow will be possible across the snow belt. An inch or 2 of accumulation is possible. We could also see a few snow flakes outside of the snowbelt here and there during the day.

By Saturday morning, low temperatures will settle into the single digits with wind chills below zero!

But the arctic air makes a quick retreat. By Saturday, high temperatures reach back up into the middle 30s. We are in the 40s on Sunday. And get ready for some 50 degree highs by the middle of next week!
