Showers will continue across northeastern Ohio through the remainder of the day. The stronger storms from earlier this morning are now moving off to the east, but it will remain quite breezy across the area through the afternoon. Temperatures are already beginning to fall, and they will continue to do so through this afternoon.
Colder air will continue to pour southeastward across the region through tonight. Rain showers will change to snow showers overnight with some light accumulations possible. Low temperatures tonight will fall to the mid 20s.
It will be brisk and cold on Thursday with scattered snow showers possible. With the colder air flowing across the lake, some lake effect snow showers and squalls will develop during the day as conditions become more favorable. The best chance of heavy snow will be across the lake shore areas from northeastern Cuyahoga county,, northeast toward Ashtabula. Highs on Thursday will only rise a couple of degrees.
A secondary cold front will drop southward across the region Thursday night. Scattered snow showers will be possible, with the heaviest lake snows continuing across the primary snow belt east of Cleveland through Thursday evening. Overnight, the winds will shift to the northwest and this will push the heavier snow further inland, possibly as far south as Medina, Akron, Ravenna, and Youngstown. Lows Thursday night will fall to the teens. Significant accumulations are possible where squalls persist.
Snow showers will continue across the region on Friday with more persistent and heavier snow showers likely across the snow belt areas. Additional accumulation is likely across the snow belt. Highs on Friday will top out around 20 degrees.
