CLEVELAND — Cloudy skies will hang around tonight as a weak cold front slides east thru the state. A few isolated rain or wet snow showers are possible, mainly before midnight. Lows will drop down to near 30 degrees by sunrise.

Lots of clouds will stream through the area on Thursday. We could also see some late afternoon or evening light rain or wet snow again. Nothing too disruptive for your travel plans. Highs on Thursday will once again climb into the upper 30s to near 40 degrees.

By Friday it's more lake effect thanks to a BIG drop in temps. Numbers drop into the teens and twenties again Friday with a flow coming off the lake. East of Cleveland again stands the best shot for minor accumulations on Friday.

Saturday stays very cold with high temperatures struggling into the lower and middle 20s. Wind chills will hang in the teens and single digits at times.

Our big focus for the extended period is Sunday night & Monday. MLK Day could be a snowy one. We're watching a potential storm ride up the east coast or the Appalachian Mountain Chain and that could mean snow for us. Right now its too soon for specifics (despite what you are hearing on the internet!) The storm's track is still uncertain. We could see enough snow to shovel or...none at all. The bottom line: We will keep you posted!
