Wet, windy and chilly for most of the holiday weekend

Posted at 3:23 PM, Apr 15, 2022

CLEVELAND — It is a busy weekend that has included a Guardians' home opener, the Cavs' final game of the season and of course, holidays! Let's discuss what to expect throughout today and tomorrow.


The weekend will start off soggy with chilly rain and even a few flakes mixing in at times. It will stay chilly all day. After highs in the 60s on Friday, temperatures will drop around 10-15 degrees and barely crack 50 degrees for the lakeside communities and up to the mid 50s inland.

There looks to be a brief break from wet weather during the afternoon on Saturday though with thinning clouds and sunshine.



Despite some much-needed sunshine in the forecast, clouds look to roll back in by Saturday night. This is especially true for northern Ohio.

A period of light lake effect/enhanced snow will move through late on Saturday and into early on Sunday with cold temperatures around the freezing point. The snow will impact areas to the north and to the east the most, but those impacts will be minor. Additionally, any accumulation looks minor (less than 1'' for most) and should stick on colder surfaces like your back deck, car and lawns. The road temperatures are pretty warm and should hold up with any accumulation. However, use a bit of caution overnight in the snowbelt on the roads.



While Easter will be chilly (below average by about 10-15 degrees) with highs only in the low to mid 40s, the snow showers do not look to linger all day. The sun should come out during the daytime hours! The rest of Easter weekend looks chilly but dry. The break is once again brief though! Expect more chilly temps and wet weather as we head into next week.
