FORECAST: Falling Temps + Accumulating snow

Posted at 6:06 AM, Jan 12, 2023

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: In effect from 1 AM Friday through 1 AM Saturday for Cuyahoga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Ashtabula and Geauga Counties.

It has been a SOGGY day with over an inch of rain in many communities. The day started off mild, but temperatures will be dropping this evening to around 32 degrees. That means lingering rain will mix over to snow overnight with accumulating snow by Friday morning. Plan on a couple inches by sunrise with a few more throughout the day. Highest snow totals will be along the lakeshore and east of Cleveland thanks to lake enhancement from the still ice-free Lake Erie.

Snow shuts down late Friday night with a drier, much calmer weekend on tap. It will be quieter on Saturday, but cold! Temperatures will fall Saturday night into the low 20s! After a chilly start to Sunday, temps will build to the low 40s and stay dry.

Next week looks pretty mild with many days in the 40s and 50s - but it will be rainy too. Plan for on and off rain for most of next week.

What To Expect:

  • Temps crashing
  • Rain changing to snow overnight
  • Shovelable snow for many Friday
  • Snow ends Friday
  • Quiet & chilly weekend
  • Mild again next week
