FORECAST: Weekend snow only a day away

Posted at 5:57 AM, Mar 10, 2022

CLEVELAND — Thursday remains dry with temperatures in the upper 30s to near 40 in our Northern Counties and lower to middle 40s farther south. Thursday will be a bit cooler with highs dropping back into the upper 30s but 40s return on Friday. We should see some sunshine during the day on Thursday as week before clouds return on Thursday night.

Then all eyes move to the next storm. Plan on rain arriving Friday afternoon especially in our northern and western communities. That rain changes to snow for EVERYONE Friday night into Saturday and becomes widespread. The heaviest snow will be south and east of Cleveland and overnight on Friday. Plan on breaking out the shovels early Saturday as temps continue to drop through the day. Right now, we expect a general 1 to 4 inches of snow across our area by Saturday late afternoon with locally higher amounts to the east and in the snowbelt.

Otherwise, Saturday will be very cold and blustery! Wind chills in the single digits will be likely. The cold spell is brief though! We're back near 40 Sunday with 50s, 60s and ... yes... possibly 70 next week! Oh my!
