CLEVELAND — We are officially into a big week for travel and last minute shopping. We need some cooperation from Mother Nature. We've got it!

For Christmas week, next few days will be chilly but quiet for most. I cannot rule out a few light lake effect snow showers on Wednesday and Thursday for our NE communities. Little to no accumulation is expected though. A stronger system will move toward the area by the end of the week. However, it will not bring us a White Christmas. In fact, temperatures look to climb well above average by Christmas Eve with rain showers building in late and sticking around through Christmas morning.
