Winter Storm Warning continues for Ashtabula, Lake & Geauga counties until 1 am Tuesday. Additional 2-4" of lake effect snow could impact these areas through early Tuesday.

Major winter storm is pushing out but dumped over a foot of snow for a large chunk of NE Ohio, including around 25" in Ashtabula! Some lake enhanced snow will linger through early Tuesday and temps will remain below freezing until Wednesday afternoon.

We briefly enjoy warmer temps near 40 Wednesday before brutally cold air returns late week.

There's also a few more chances for mix and snow later in the week.
