Storm brushes area with a little snow overnight into Tuesday

The weekend has milder or at least less cool prospects, as high temperatures climb higher into the 40s on Saturday and then finally reach 50 degrees Sunday.

Thursday, we kick things up a bit, with an 11 degree jump to 40° for the high and sunshine.

Rain and snow will continue up until about midnight tonight before tapering off. While spring is officially just more than one week away, the middle of this week will be characterized by blustery winds, unseasonable temperatures, and occasional snow showers and flurries. However, as shown on the map below, most areas will only get a dusting. There will be a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms Friday morning, staying mostly cloudy the rest of the day. "For the Primary Snow Belt, Cleveland, Akron, and Medina, expect 2" - 4" of new snowfall through Wednesday. The heaviest amounts from this first round of wet weather will occur between 2am and 2pm on Tuesday.

Snow will wind down Tuesday night into Wednesday. The York St. Patrick's Day parade on Saturday should be pleasant with a mix of sun and clouds. Snow levels will likely dip to around 3000' to 4000' from that system. A few clouds possible Thursday night as lows drop into the 20s to low 30s. It's a short-lived break those as chances for showers, and maybe even a rumble of thunder at times, carry us into the weekend and early next week. However, if the low fails to fully develop or track further south, only light scattered rain and snow showers would be possible during this time frame.
