Posted at 6:38 AM, Nov 15, 2021

CLEVELAND — Lake effect mix still a concern for Cleveland and into the primary snow belt. Plan on another trace to 1" locally through the day. Warm ground will continue melting any snow though. Roads should be wet but only bridges briefly get a little slick.

The wind relaxes this evening shutting down the lake effect machine. Temps stay cold but we're drying out. That drying trend rolls into the middle of the week with upper 40s Tuesday and mid-60s Wednesday.

Out next storm system rolls in Wednesday night dropping temps and increasing rain chances.

Thursday is wet and much colder followed by a transition to another wintry mix by Friday.
