Chilly air will continue to grip the Cleveland area through this weekend, but warmer air is coming.

Highs this weekend will remain around 50 with lows in the upper 30s. Much of the week has been below average with highs mainly in the upper 40s.

The average high for this time of year in Cleveland is around 60. Temperatures this week have been running as high as 10 degrees below average.

With the cold air in place, some folks in the Cleveland suburbs recorded their first snowfall of the season. The favorable lake-affect areas in northeastern Ohio recorded significant accumulations Thursday morning.

Snow is not expected in the city this weekend or early next week, but a shower or two will be around Saturday.
