Cleveland Climate and Weather

The weather in Cleveland follows the Midwest seasonal pattern, but is modified quite strongly by Lake Erie, which counters the worst of the summer heat waves and makes for a milder winter season than in other northern cities. Summers (June to August) are warm and humid, with average temperatures between 60F (16C) and 82F (28C). Winters (December to January) are cold and snowy, averaging between 21°F (-6C) and 38°F (3C).
