FORECAST: Digging out of a major winter storm

Posted at 6:08 AM, Jan 17, 2022

Winter Weather Advisory for Lake, Geauga, & Ashtabula Counties thru 4am Tuesday for a few lingering lake effect snow showers and blowing and drifting snow.

Major winter storm has pushed out of the area. Tonight will see a few lingering flurries, gusty winds and cold low temperatures near 20 degrees.

Tuesday see a few morning flurries and then mostly cloudy skies thru the day. Temperatures warm into the lower 30s by evening.

We briefly enjoy warmer temps near 40 Wednesday ahead of a weak Alberta Clipper moving in from the northwest. A few isolated rain or snow showers are possible as the Clipper moves by.

Behind that storm system: get ready for the Arctic Plunge! Highs for the rest of the week thru the weekend will struggle into the upper teens and low/mid 20s
into next week. Overnight lows Friday morning and Saturday morning will drop to near zero in many locations. Some of the coldest air of Winter is moving our way!
There's also a few more chances for mix and snow later in the week.
