CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A sprawling area of low pressure is sitting and spinning north of our region.

With ample moisture lingering across our area, and plenty of cold air to work with, areas of lake-enhanced snow (and graupel) have been ongoing since Monday evening.

As temperatures attempt to warm into the mid to upper 40s this afternoon, most of the wintry precipitation should change over to light rain and/or drizzle.

However, some additional graupel cannot be ruled out, even through the afternoon.

As we get closer to the evening commute, all precipitation will come to an end.

Skies will gradually clear from west to east through the evening.

Winds will slowly subside overnight, allowing temperatures to plummet into the low 30s by morning.

Patchy frost will be possible tomorrow morning.

Early-season gardeners should take measures to protect tender vegetation.

Today will be our final wintry day in the short-term forecast.

Highs will return to the 60s Wednesday afternoon.

By Thursday, we’ll be back in the 80s!

Unfortunately, the unseasonably warm weather will only be a one-day affair.

Rain will return for Friday and Saturday, keeping our high temperatures in the 60s each day.

By Sunday, temperatures will only be climbing into the 40s.
