6:18 pm
with only 17-point 8. half of the snow that's fallen has fallen this month. we did make it back up to the freezing mark. as we head into the weekend, we're going to see temperatures surging. tonight it's going to go the other direction. we had snow showers falling in northern ohio right now. a little bit of lake effect falling in the area. yes, we do get showers that fall farther to the south. this is just clipping new philadelphia andover, headed off to southwestern portions of carol county. random flurries to the east of cleveland and the traditional snow belt areas and farther to the west. these have really not been too much of a concern as far as visibility standards go across northern ohio and certainly has not had an impact on the roads. temperatures tonight, after the snow leaves us, we'll start to see some clearing, and the temperatures are going to be diving. we have perfect cooling conditions that are going to be setting up tonight. winds going nearly calm. clouds starting to clear out.
6:19 pm
that means we have some cold temperatures. you can see off to the northwest of us, lake effect has been shut down off of superior and michigan. that is basically the trend that will translate eastward across huron, erie, and ontario. they will also be taken over by high pressure that has a calming influence. that's also going to calm the winds. that allows the coldest of the wind. it's cold and dense. that will fall down the surface. interesting enough. our forecast models have the rare ability to pick up on these changes mostly because as the wind ebbs and flows, even the lightest of winds stir the air and change the temperatures. even though we're showing we're going to start off in the teens, we'll also have a few pockets that are colder. we've seen this happen already where everybody else will be in the mid and upper teens and
6:20 pm
5. it's just one of those situations that will be setting up. high pressure is with us tomorrow. we're going to be seeing sunshine and not only that, temperatures getting back up to around the freezing mark, if not a couple clicks better as we head throughout the afternoon. southwest winds building in, and that's the beginning of our warmup. after a very cold start, akron around 5. we'll turn things around and make it back into the freezing range. and then that big surge starts to work in for friday. rain chances with windy conditions for friday. as we get into saturday and your window nation 7-day forecast, temperatures popping up toward the 50-degree mark. as we go friday into saturday, we may actually have some temperatures that are above 50 degrees. we're playing it on both sides at this point. rain and snow shower chances return on sunday and then back to more typical type temperatures on monday with a slight snow chance. as we keep an eye on the east coast, because we could have a storm system going up the east coast again. we're just going to have to
6:21 pm
