CLEVELAND — The wind advisory has expired across NE Ohio, but it will remain breezy overnight with 15-25 mph wind gusts. The gusty winds coupled with crashing temperatures will make it feel bitterly cold overnight and into Thursday morning. We will likely dip into the teens by early Thursday with wind chills in the single digits!! Stay warm

A few snow showers are possible Wednesday night, but most stay dry until Thursday and Friday. Best shot for snow then will be our southern counties and up around the snow belt due to lake effect snow. Temps are holding in the 20s Friday with spotty snow showers. Accumulation is most likely late Thursday and into early Friday.

We are drier for Saturday but Sunday looks warmer & wet with mainly rain expected.
