CLEVELAND — Prepare for the possible first widespread snow of the season coming Sunday!

Skies will be cloudy tonight with temperatures falling back into the lower 30s by sunrise. Winds will continue to gust above 20 mph. Area-wide, I expect some light rain or light snow. A snow squall coming in off the lake tonight could dump anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow across a narrow section of Ashtabula County by sunrise.

A fast moving Alberta Clipper system will slide southeast across the area on Sunday. This will lead to our first legitimate shot of accumulated snows across all of Northern Ohio Sunday afternoon. Accumulations should remain in the trace to 2 inches of wet, slushy snow. It will continue to be blustery & cold thru the day with highs in the middle and upper 30s.

Few snow showers are still possible Monday with chilly air sticking around.


  • Blustery tonight with gusts above 20 mph
  • Lake effect snow tonight in Ashtabula County
  • Widespread snow on Sunday
  • Accumulations between a trace and 3 inches
  • Much colder all weekend


Saturday Night: Breezy and colder with a lake effect mix possible. | Low: 33º

Sunday: Widespread snow during the afternoon and evening. Could mix with rain at times. Snow totals: Trace to 2 inches. Cold. | High: 38º

Monday: Lake effect snow showers mixing with rain. Still cold. | High: 41º
