Despite today's balmy temperatures, a Lake Effect Snow Watch is in effect beginning early Thursday
Today, 60-degree temperatures and possible thunderstorms. Tomorrow, temperatures in the teens and lake-effect snow, which could dump as much as a foot in some areas. Welcome to Cleveland weather! The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Watch beginning Thursday morning and extending through Friday night. A cold front will move into the area tonight, allowing an arctic airmass to settle over Northeast Ohio. Forecasters say inland snow accumulations could reach six inches to a foot, with up to two feet of accumulation possible in areas closest to the lake. Basically, the closer to the lake, the greater chance for higher snow accumulations.
