A cold and unstable westerly flow of air across northeastern Ohio today will produce mostly cloudy skies and provide the area with the threat of a few passing rain or snow showers through this afternoon. Little if any accumulation is expected.
High temperatures will top out in the upper 30s to around 40 degrees.
Tonight, a secondary cold front will drop southeastward across the area. This will produce widespread snow shower activity across all of northeastern Ohio. Later tonight, winds will shift to the northwest as the cold air deepens across the area. This will promote the development of some heavier lake effect snow bands across the snow belt areas, especially to the east of Akron and Cleveland. Some accumulation is possible in these areas.
Low temperatures tonight will dip into the mid to upper 20s.
Lake effect snow showers will continue across the snow belt through Wednesday with additional accumulation possible. Elsewhere, scattered snow showers or flurries are possible.
Highs on Wednesday will reach the mid 30s.
High pressure will build across the area Wednesday night causing the snow showers to gradually taper off after midnight. Lows Wednesday night will fall to around 20.
Thursday will be partly sunny, but chilly, with highs in the mid 30s.
