CLEVELAND - A cold night across northern Ohio helped set new record lows across parts of the area overnight.
Clear skies and light winds teamed up with a cooler Canadian air mass to drop temperatures into the 40s, except right along the Lake Erie shoreline. Those temperatures stayed in the 50s.
Two major cities set new record lows this morning.
The temperature at Mansfield's Lahm Airport fell to 46 degrees at 7:00 a.m. and tied a record low set in 1979.
Also, the Youngstown Regional Airport set a new record low of 46 degrees at 7:07 a.m. Their previous record for today was 47 degrees also set in 1979.
WKYC Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling says morning low temperatures will begin to return to more normal levels over the next few days. The normal low for this time of year in Cleveland is 63 degrees.
