CLEVELAND — An Alberta Clipper low pressure system is sliding thru the area tonight. Burst of moderate snow are possible before midnight area-wide. After that, flurries will be the rule with lake effect snow showers across the snowbelt east of Cleveland thru Tuesday AM. Overnight accumulations will be mainly an inch or less for most. Where lake effect snow bands persist, up to 3 or maybe 4 inches of snow are possible through sunrise Tuesday. Low temperatures tonight will be cold...in the middle and upper 20s.
Tuesday skies will be mostly cloudy. A few light snow showers or flurries are possible during the day. East in the snowbelt, an organized snow band or 2 could continue to accumulate snow and make roads slick. Otherwise, its going to be the coldest day since early February. High temperatures will only climb into the upper 20s and lower 30s. Bundle up!
We're looking closer to 40 Wednesday with 50s both Thursday and Friday.
St. Patrick's Day is looking warm but it's also looking wet. Plan on scattered rain showers through the day.
More winter air moves in for the start of next weekend, along the with the chance for more snowflakes!
