CLEVELAND — A cold front swept across the News 5 viewing area overnight, bringing much cooler air and minor snow accumulations to most of Northeast Ohio on the first day of April.

Power of meteorologist Trent Magill gave a weather update at 7:30 a.m. Rewatch it in the media player below:

Wet, fat snowflakes are kicking off your Thursday morning commute.

News 5 photojournalist Dave Kraska shot a video of snow coming down in Independence at Rockside and Brecksville roads.

Most areas will see between 1 to 3 inches of snow with more snow in isolated spots where squalls persist will get about 3 inches.

Temperatures remain in the 30s with wind chills in the teens.


Plan on a not-so-spring day, a drastic change from Tuesday’s 70-degree weather.

Typically we see over a foot of snow in March, but this year only a trace. We can't hang the book up on March just yet though. Some snowflakes may mix in before midnight. Either way, we're not getting anywhere near the seasonal norm of 12.3 inches.
