FORECAST: Another Winter Storm Approaching for Friday

Posted at 6:26 AM, Mar 01, 2023

CLEVELAND — Cloudy skies will be the rule for the overnight. As a weak cold front slides by, we could see a few rain showers moving in as well. Lows tonight will drop into the 30s.

Clouds will mix with sunshine through the day on Thursday. There is a small chance for some drizzle around Greater Cleveland and east into the snow belt, mainly during the morning hours. Temperatures will range from the middle 40s north to near 50 degrees south during the afternoon.

The next major storm system will move into the Great Lakes Friday afternoon. It looks like Northern Ohio will once again miss the heavy snow and freezing rain by just a few dozen miles to our north. Instead expect a heavy, cold rain for much of the area with a few spots collecting over 1" of rainfall. Winds could gust above 30 mph Friday afternoon as well. Highs will hover in the 40s to near 50 degrees.

Scattered snow flakes are possible early Saturday morning with up to an inch of accumulation. But then we'll dry out and warm up into the lower and middle 40s for the afternoon.
