CLEVELAND — There will be a few lingering snow showers across NE Ohio tonight. Otherwise, we will see mostly cloudy, breezy and cold conditions. Lows will drop into the low to mid 20s across the region.

We will see more clouds, but some sun will peek through as we begin the new week. Temperatures will struggle to warm much on Monday, as highs will be around the freezing mark. We then will see temperatures bump up into the upper 30s for Tuesday and Wednesday. An isolated shower will be possible on Wednesday, otherwise, it will be a dry start to the week.

We are still monitoring a POTENTIAL WINTER STORM for late next week which will likely usher in bitter cold temperatures for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Shovelable snow is also possible by Thursday and Friday, setting the table for a White Christmas Day. REMEMBER: This potential storm is still several days out. Don't believe everything you see on the internet about snowfall totals. It is still WAY TOO EARLY for exact numbers. A lot will change between now and then.
