Cleveland will get some snow
Cleveland is not under any winter weather watch/warning/advisory with snow accumulation expected to remain under 2 inches tonight. Folks should still be prepared for some possible slick spots on roads.

It's going to stay cold
Temperatures will hover in the middle to upper 20s for much of Northeast Ohio overnight. That will mean the potential for quite a few slick spots developing on roads, especially bridges and overpasses. Drive with caution, especially if you are heading south of the Cleveland area where road conditions will likely get worse.

Snow showers should remain widespread through about 1-2 AM then become more spotty by 3-4 AM Sunday. Snow should move out by mid-morning Sunday. The rest of Sunday should be mostly cloudy and dry with temperatures climbing to the low 30s by Sunday afternoon.
