The National Weather Service in Cleveland has now issued a WINTER STORM WARNING for a mix of SNOW, SLEET and FREEZING RAIN for our area. The WARNING is in effect from 10 PM this evening until 7 PM Wednesday evening.

Snow will develop this evening and continue through the night. Snowfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches can be expected tonight ahead of the warm front.

Snow will continue on Tuesday but is expected to be light in intensity as the first wave of snow moves east of the area. The snow will then increase in intensity again late Tuesday afternoon into the evening. However, due to warm air moving north ahead of the storm system the snow will become mixed with sleet and freezing rain Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. The mixed precipitation will reduce the amount of snow accumulation south of the Lake Shore. Freezing Rain will cause ice to accumulate on exposed untreated surfaces.

Ice will accumulated around one quarter of an inch where the freezing rain develops. However amounts of ice accumulation between one quarter and one half inch are possible, mainly across the southern tier areas.

Total Storm Snow accumulation will be around 3 inches across the south and around 12 inches near the Lake Shore.

The Storm System will move east of the area Wednesday afternoon changing any mixed precipitation over to all snow. The snow will taper off gradually to light snow towards Wednesday evening.
