A storm system over southern Ontario will move slowly away from the area today. Cold air and moisture will wrap around the back side of this system and across northeastern Ohio today producing clouds and areas of light snow or snow showers.
The most persistent snow showers will be across the primary snow belt east of Cleveland where western winds off the lake will help to enhance the activity.
It will be windy today with westerly winds gusting in excess of 35 mph at times.
Highs this afternoon will reach the low to mid 30s.
Scattered snow showers will continue tonight as the cold westerly flow persists. Some accumulating snow is possible across the primary snow belt where a few heavier squalls could develop downwind of the lake.
Lows will dip into the low 20s.
Snow showers will continue across the primary snow belt on Wednesday with just a few scattered snow showers or flurries expected elsewhere. Highs on Wednesday will be around 30 degrees.
A trough will drop southeastward across the area Wednesday night causing the winds to shift to the northwest. Scattered snow showers are possible across the entire area with heavier lake effect squalls possible across the snow belt areas east of Akron and Cleveland. In these areas, some additional accumulation is expected. Lows Wednesday night will fall to the upper teens.
The snow showers will continue on Thursday with highs topping out around 30 degrees.
