CLEVELAND — Light snow and flurries will continue across the area Saturday night through Christmas Day. A heavier snow squall will likely continue along the shoreline of Lake and Ashtabula Counties with additional snow accumulations. It will be windy, but local travel should improve by Christmas morning. Highs on Christmas Day will top out in the teens with wind chills below zero.

We will begin to see a change in temperatures as we head into the final week of 2022. Temps will gradually moderate as we head into the new work week, as highs top off near 30 by Tuesday.

Warmer air will continue to filter in for the end of the week into New Year's Eve, as highs will top off in the lower 50s by Friday into Saturday! Rain chances will be on the increase along with the warmer air as we end 2022.
