Snow returns to Northeast Ohio: Thursday weather forecast for Cleveland, Akron

Highs Tuesday make it into the 50s

Friday afternoon's high temperatures will range from the upper 30s (north) to lower 40s (most of NJ). We could see more snow and temperatures falling down into the single digits by Sunday night. It won't be enough to accumulate, but it will be the first flakes of the season for some! Sunday is expected to be a bit warmer with a high of of 47 degrees and the skies will be mostly cloudy. We start with temperatures in the 20s this morning feeling a little more like January, instead of the middle of fall.

That trend will continue as winds strengthen Friday.

The NWS say temperatures will stabilize on Thursday and into the weekend, but will remain near to below normal over the eastern half of the nation generally.

A powerful Arctic Surge across most of the US is expected to bring record-breaking cold temperatures early next week. Winds will relax through the day. Overnight lows will drop into the mid to upper 40s.

Temperatures, however, are going to be very cold for this time of year.

"The National Weather Service is forecasting 170 potential daily record cold high temperatures Monday to Wednesday", Weather Channel meteorologist Jonathan Erdman said in a tweet. Another batch of cold air arrives later Tuesday, with another chance of some snow over the interior.

Highs on Monday and Tuesday will range from the upper teens across northern Iowa to the mid-20s across southern Iowa. That rain will taper off to the east-southeast as we go through the day, ending completely by about 2 p.m.

TUESDAY: Mostly sunny, breezy and colder.
