CLEVELAND — The record for latest snowfall in Cleveland is May 11, 2020. It's hard to believe we're still over a month away from that but believe it.

Maybe this week's snow will be a good reminder of what "spring in Ohio" is like.

We're near 70 degrees Tuesday followed by a quick drop. It will be 50 degrees Wednesday morning as rain rolls in. Temps continue to drop. Plan on 40s and rain through Wednesday afternoon with the drop staying steady. We don't stop the drop until Thursday morning.

We'll bottom out near 30 degrees. That means rain changing to snow as we kick Thursday off. Plan on fat, wet snowflakes melting on contact with the ground. That being said, it could accumulate on elevated surfaces. A pretty coating on the daffodils!

The rebound is a good one though. Back in the 60s this coming weekend.
