FORECAST: Brutally cold temps and lake effect snow wrapping up the work week

Posted at 6:13 AM, Jan 06, 2022

CLEVELAND — Light snow in our southern counties will slowly come to an end Thursday evening as a storm pushes south of Ohio. Plan on minor accumulations up to 1" south of Canton. As that snow ends, lake effect starts up. That means overnight and through much of Friday we'll be tracking snow squalls coming off the lake. "Where squalls persist" we could see up to 1" per hour. That means shovelable snow for some over the hours and impacts to the Friday commute.

Friday will also be cold again! Temps only rebounding from the teens to the 20s in the afternoon. Wind chills stuck in the single digits and lower teens. Layers!

We are drier and seasonable on Saturday, but Sunday looks soaked. Warmer... but SOAKED.
