A warm front will lift northward across the area today. Radar looks quite active this morning across northeastern Ohio, but the low levels are so dry that nothing is reaching the ground. There could be a few flurries, especially in the east this morning, but most locations will have a dry day. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s this afternoon.
Tonight, low pressure will move eastward through the Great Lakes. Precipitation will spread across the area late tonight. The precipitation will likely fall as a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow with more snow in the northeast, and more rain in the southwest. Some light snow accumulations are possible in the far northeast. Lows tonight will dip to around 30 degrees.
On Friday, the system over the Great Lakes will phase with a low near the northern Mid Atlantic coast. The new low will deepen rapidly while moving northeast to the New England coast by late Friday. Precipitation across our area will change to all snow during the day on Friday as colder air is drawn southward across the region.
The snow will taper to snow showers across the central and western areas, but some deeper moisture could spread westward causing heavier snow to fall across the far eastern areas through the afternoon. Some accumulation is possible across the east. Highs on Friday will be in the mid 30s early, then temperatures will fall during the afternoon.
Snow showers will end Friday night as high pressure builds across the area. Lows Friday night will be in the teens.
Saturday will be partly to mostly sunny with highs reaching the upper 20s.
