A passing Alberta Clipper system Thursday night could continue to spark a few Friday morning flurries across Northeast Ohio, with up to 3 inches accumulating from the night before.
Alberta Clippers are a type of winter storm typically associated with lighter snow amounts. They move much more quickly and are further from any major body of water, so they do not have the time to gain enough moisture for intense snowfall events, such as nor'easters.
The rest of the day into Saturday, high pressure will fill in, drying skies out significantly reducing precipitation chances to extremely slight.
Sunday, a passing warm front will bring temperatures into the 50s, and spark some light rain showers.
