So, given the choice, which would you pick: rain or snow?
Wednesday starts with snow and leads into a sunny Thursday.
Northeast Ohio weather is indecisive as usual. Last night, Cuyahoga Falls saw a wintry mix under a cloudy sky and nighttime low of around 30 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Hopefully, it wasn't enough snow to get you scraping at the car windshield. Today, any morning snow should end by 10 a.m., and the day will have a high near 39 degrees.
