(WJW) — No one will blame you for skipping your Saturday morning run — outside temperatures will feel like they’re in the single digits in much of Northeast Ohio.
Saturday’s high is expected to be 32 degrees. Though temperatures will only reach the low 20s by 6 a.m., they’ll feel much colder — 9 degrees in Cleveland; 8 degrees in Ashtabula; and 6 degrees in Chardon.
“Just when you thought we were done with the snow, we have another system that’s going to move in this weekend,” said FOX 8 meteorologist Mackenzie Bart
If you’re looking to run errands, the first half of Saturday is the best time, she said. Chances for more weekend snow “greatly increased” over Friday, and lake effect snow is expected to pick up Saturday night through Sunday morning.
Severe winter storm watches go into effect at 7 p.m. Saturday. Expect 6 to 8 inches in parts of Lake, Ashtabula and Geauga counties, mostly along Interstate 90, Bart said.
