Posted at 6:06 AM, Dec 16, 2021

CLEVELAND — High wind threat has ended. It will be blustery tonight. But winds will subside quite a bit. Skies clear out and temperatures fall back to near 30 degrees by sunrise. Grab the coats!

Cooler, more seasonal temperatures hang around through the weekend. Rain showers arrive Friday night and continue on and off thru mid afternoon Saturday. We could see a little wet snow mixing in at times.

Most of the rain is gone for the Browns Game. But, I still cant rule out a brief shower or even a few snow flakes by the end of the 4th quarter. Highs Saturday top out near 40 degrees.

A few lake effect snow showers are possible Sunday. It stays cold with highs in the middle 30s. Stay warm.
