    Colder air will blast into Cleveland this weekend with accumulating snow and travel problems.

    After temperatures temperatures pushing close to 50 degrees on Friday, blustery conditions will arrive in time for the weekend with lake-effect flurries and squalls that can catch people off guard.

    Temperatures will likely hold near the freezing mark (32 degrees) Saturday and could actually fall during the day. Motorists should be prepared for slippery travel.

    A second push of cold air from the Arctic will arrive Saturday evening and will be accompanied by gusty winds lasting into Sunday. Gusts can top 40 mph. Temperatures will in the 20s throughout the day Sunday. RealFeel® temperatures will plunge into the teens and even the single digits at times.

    Any untreated surfaces made initially made wet by the snow will freeze.

    It is this second blast that will really crank up the lake-effect snow machine east of Cleveland in northeastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania. A foot of blinding, heavy, travel-snarling snow could fall where the bands of snow persist.
