Posted at 9:10 AM, Jan 23, 2022

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — A Winter Weather Advisory issued for most of Northeast Ohio has been canceled with most of the snowfall coming to a temporary end Sunday evening.

Sunday night will be cold but there will be a brief break in the snowfall before another round of accumulating snow moves back into the area by Monday.

The Akron Municipal Court will be closed Monday due to a power outage and lack of heat in the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center. All hearings, including arraignments, will be rescheduled later in the week.

This clipper will move across the region early Sunday and looks to become widespread around sunrise through the mid-afternoon. Expect accumulating snow across the area from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. Snow could be heavy at times leading to slick roads and several hours of low visibility. Snow will gradually taper off between 2-5 p.m and will likely come to an end for most of the area by the mid-afternoon. However, lake effect snow bands are likely to linger in the Snowbelt and lead to higher snowfall amounts. Lake effect is expected to end by Sunday night.

The lowest totals are expected in the southernmost communities. This snow is expected to be light and fluffy, so blowing and drifting snow will be possible.
