The snowfall was just a dusting that melted by early afternoon. If someone doesn't want ANY snow, Greater Cleveland is not a good fit. April snowfalls are greatly diminished from those in decades past.

It is good to understand how Lake Erie impacts the weather in northeastern Ohio. E.g., for the last several days, areas northeast of Cleveland have been up to 10 degrees F. cooler than Cleveland proper and areas south and west of Cleveland due to chilly winds coming off the lake. Lake Erie will act as an air conditioner for these areas well into summer.

However, in the autumn, the effect is reversed, and the warm breezes blowing off the lake provide for warmer temperatures in areas northeast of Cleveland.

The snow from 1 April didn't even last until the next day (and where I live, we didn't really have any at all in terms of accumulation).

Thanks, WRnative - that's good to know!

Thanks, bjimmy24! Glad to know it didn't stick around!

And the high temps this week are all in the 60s and 70s!

We do occasionally get snow in early April. It does not stick around long at all though.

Actually, many parts of the Cleveland area saw 5 inches or more. And the OP should know that the snow caused a 20-car pileup on Interstate 77, as well as a 12-car pileup on Interstate 90.

I was sitting in the Parma-Snow library looking out the window watching the snow come down. At one point it was coming down so hard I could barely see the shopping center across the street.

April snows are generally very minor events here... and the snow melts quickly due to warmups... but I can recall the April 6, 1982 snowstorm that dumped 8-9 inches on Cleveland.

Early Spring in NE Ohio is very bipolar and two-faced.

0 inch accumulation here in Collinwood/Euclid though.

Great places but man that traffic on Bagley Rd sucks. I still have to hit up that fat heads brewery that the built that you can see from I-75. I’ve been to the one in North Olmstead but hear the newer one is better.

You mean I-71 right? I've been to that one a few times, pre-Covid, and thought it was great. Love their beer and the food was pretty good too. The open space kind of had a beer hall feel to it. They used to have a little self-guided tour of their brewing operations, you viewed it from behind glass, thought that was cool too. Cheers.
