CLEVELAND — Scattered rain showers are likely tonight as the next wave of cold air arrives. We could even see a little wet snow mixing in after midnight. No accumulations are expected. Overnight lows will drop into the lower and middle 30s.

Saturday stays chilly and blustery all day. Highs temperatures will struggle into the lower 40s with wind chills in the 30s. Most of us will stay dry, but there could be a few lake effect rain or snow showers east of Cleveland during the afternoon.

Sunday's shot at snow will be a bit different. It won't be just lake effect. It's an Alberta Clipper. That means more widespread snow is likely. Timing and track of that storm is still a bit "up in the air" but we'll narrow it down likely Friday. Plan on minor accumulations and slick roads while it's snowing.


  • Blustery tonight winds above 25 mph
  • Scattered rain/snow mix tonight
  • Lake effect rain and snow Saturday
  • Scattered snow on Sunday
  • Much colder all weekend


Friday Night: Few rain or snow showers. Windy.| Low: 33º

Saturday: Breezy and colder with a lake effect mix possible. | High: 42º

Sunday: Scattered snow showers. Could mix with rain at times. Snow totals: Trace to 2 inches. Cold. | High: 38º
